Thyroid and SIBO with Dr Ruscio

If you’re considering whether your thyroid is part of your health puzzle then this week’s podcast is essential listening. Dr Michael Ruscio returns to The Healthy Gut podcast to talk about the gut/thyroid connection and SIBO. Dr Ruscio discusses how to know if you have thyroid issues, what symptoms to look out for and what tests are worth doing. They also look at how problems with your thyroid can interact with other conditions and which you should treat first, SIBO or your thyroid.

In Today's Episode

In Episode 36 of The Healthy Gut Podcast, we discuss:

✓  What tests you should be doing and what these are looking for
✓  The test result ranges, what is normal and what is cause for concern
✓  The difference between hypothyroid/hyperthyroid/hashimoto’s/graves disease
✓  Should we be focussing on our thyroid or will it resolve if we treat SIBO/gut issues

  1. Hi Rebecca,
    That was a great podcast! Do you know what tests Dr. Ruscio uses for mold and stool testing?
    Thank you, Tami

    1. Hi Lisa
      Unfortunately I had to stop doing the transcripts as I couldn’t afford to keep paying for them (I’ve funded the podcast out of my own pocket). I am hoping to bring the transcripts back for Season 2 though.
      Kind regards
