    Sugar

    Does sugar cause the thyroid glad to increase or decrease activity in the human body?

    Re: Sugar

    I've never heard of that before. By "sugar" do you mean having diabetes or are you talking about granulated sugar itself?

    Re: Sugar

    I have not heard of any relation between sugar and thyroid problems. On the other hand iodine does play a role in thyroid problems.

    Re: Sugar

    No I dont think either there is any relation b/w sugar and thyroid initially but once someone is hypothyroid or hyperthyroid, their sugar level gets upset and hence then everything gets messed up!

    Not a good feeling I can surely tell you that.

    Re: Sugar

    Hyperglycemia can happen due to increased thyroid hormone levels as such. However, diabetes in itself is not known to cause any alterations in levels of thyroid hormone levels. Sugar levels are regulated mainly by insulin hormone that is secreted from pancreas in our body, which is not dependent directly on thyroid gland for functioning.

    If a diabetic person has thyroid problems, then it could complicate things. This could result in some functions of your body weakening or not at all functioning properly.
