I was wondering if someone was estrogen dominant, if the HCG diet would cause ovarian hyperstimulation. Also, if someone is hypothyroid, does it improve the thyroid function. All educated responses are welcome. Thanks.
I don't know about the HCG diet, but I do know from personal experience that having high estrogen, or estrogen dominance, can create hypothyroidism symptoms. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and the meds didn't do a thing. A little later a different test showed I have estrogen dominance, and after being put on a progesterone supplement, my thyroid issues are mostly gone. But my doctor did tell me that hormone imbalance screws with everything, and so progesterone in my incidence (and is sounds like yours as well) helps clear up the issue at hand.
