Episode notes
This episode is about how hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism are linked.Hypothyroidism and PCOS can be linked in several different ways. First, changes in hormones are what cause both diseases. Insufficient thyroid hormone causes hypothyroidism, whereas too much androgen in the body causes PCOS. Second, the endocrine system controls how the body produces hormones, including those from the thyroid and ovaries. One component of the system's dysfunction can have an impact on another.
