Comment on How I Reversed Hypothyroidism in Two Months with Zero Medication by Steve http://testkitchentuesday.com/2012/12/12/how-i-reversed-hypothyroidism-in-two-months-with-zero-medication/#comment-73773 Thu, 30 Nov 2017 18:06:22 +0000 http://testkitchentuesday.com/?p=3562#comment-73773 I switched to diet soda about 15 years ago due to the notion that it would be better for me than regular soda. In the course of those 15 years my diet soda habit gradually increased. So did my dependency on it for my caffeine.
After small amounts of weight gain, I would simply drink more diet soda and reduce my caloric intake, thereby losing the weight. I controlled my weight doing this for many years.
3 years ago I was finally diagnosed with hypothyroidism (after many health complaints and weight increases that I could not shake)
Fast forward to today.
Sine being diagnosed with Hashimotos disease,my TSH has never been stable while being treated. It fluctuated from test to test and my dosage was constantly adjusted.
It occurred to me that there was one constant in my life that could be causing my TSH to be fluctuating. After thoroughly searching, I found that diet soda, can and will, cause thyroid issues. The sweetener in it is a known endocrine disrupter. The AACE has revealed that stopping diet soda consumption ( all artificial sweeteners ) can result in a complete remission from Hashimotos disease.

My experience was as follows:
4 months ago my TSH was 30, so I quit the diet soda in an effort to learn if it was having an impact on my TSH.
After quitting diet soda for 1 month, my TSH dropped to 15.
Next, after 2 months of no diet soda, my TSH was at 9.
Finally, after 4 months, my TSH came back at a mere 1.3
I am going to see my endocrinologist in 6 weeks to have a full panel work up done, and to see if my antibodies are now in the normal range.
I thought that all of you should be made aware of these results because I know that a lot of people try to control their weight.
Diet soda is not something that you want to use in your attempt to achieve that goal. It is “tentatively” linked as a cause for thyroid disorders, including hyperthyroidism.
You can look at my test results and determine for yourself if diet soda is merely “tentatively” linked to thyroid disruption.
I hope that this information helps those of you who regularly consume artificially sweetened substances and are suffering from a thyroid disorder. Artificial sweeteners are abundant in the grocery store, i.e., processed foods and drinks.

I definitely will! I think I’ve been overdoing the workouts too! I don’t know why I haven’t been able to convince myself that an hour or more a day isn’t necessary to be healthy. Thank you again for sharing your story and I am so glad to hear that you’re still going strong on your progress!! That is GREAT!! :))

I’m so glad you found this helpful. I know so many women with this issue, and most of them go the route of the meds. I just was not okay with that–and I’m glad I wasn’t. It’s been years now and I haven’t relapsed. Sometimes our bodies just need a little help along the way. I was guilty of overworking out–which had the opposite effect of my intentions. It spiked stress and cortisol.

I wish you the best and come back and tell me how you do!

Angela

I have to THANK YOU for sharing your story!!!! I’ve recently been diagnosed with the same thyroid condition you mentioned…in fact my TSH levels are 6.00 and all I’ve heard is I’ll need to go on meds…which I too am not ok with being the only solution if I can somehow reverse my thyroid condition and heal it naturally if it’s possible. Anyway, it was so refreshing to read about your experience …it left me with hope and excitement that I may have a better solution in front of me. I’ve already made some significant diet changes even though I thought I was eating healthy, I was still overdoing my carbs, sneaking in a treat here and there but I’ve been under a lot of stress so I know that was “propelling” me towards sugary fruits and popcorn (even if it was popped in virgin coconut oil!)….and even though I do intense workouts consistently (HiiT and resistance training, etc)
So, thank you! I felt by the time I finished reading it and re-reading excerpts aloud to my husband, that I had just made a friend who gets what I’m going through…and the direction I’ve been trying to find.
I appreciate the insight!!! My doctor is quick to prescribe meds, and I plan to ask for a chance to heal my thyroid first!
