Episode - Can taking bile salts cause hyperthyroidism?


Can taking bile salts cause hyperthyroidism?

Bile is a fluid produced by the liver and stored and concentrated in the gallbladder. It plays a crucial role in digestion, specifically in helping to break down fats into fatty acids and in the excretion of waste products.

Today, I’m talking about why people take bile salts, the potential effect on thyroid conditions, and whether those with hyperthyroidism should avoid taking them.


During this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The role of bile in digestion and bilirubin excretion
  • Causes of elevated bilirubin
  • The numerous functions of bile salts and potential effects on thyroid conditions
  • How hyperthyroidism can increase bilirubin levels


As always, I hope you found this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
