My take on the thyroid/performance debate: Thyroid madness- Everything you need to know:

The large majority of hypothyroidism occurs because of an autoimmune disorder (Hashimoto’s) which essentially means that your body is attacking itself. SO your antibodies essentially attack the thyroid and if nothing is done, the thyroid is eventually “destroyed.” This would be called primary hypothyroidism because there is something wrong with the thyroid itself. Other forms include secondary hypothyroidism , and tertiary hypothyroidism. Secondary refers to when the Pituitary gland is messed up and doesn’t create enough TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone), and tertiary is when the hypothalamus doesn’t release enough Thyrotopin-releasing hormone (TRH) which doesn’t stimulate the pituitary to produce TSH, and so on.
