Cortisol - Estrogen and Your Thyroid

Prolonged cortisol elevation can cause excess estrogen to accumulate. This extra estrogen increases levels of thyroid-binding globulin (TBG), which is the protein that allows your thyroid hormones to travel through your bloodstream. When thyroid hormones are attached to TBG they remain inactive, so T4 canít be stored in your tissues or converted to Free T3.

Been researching this lately. Itís new to me but the interesting piece is estrogen. So when we elevate e2, that is having an effect on the thyroid. Might be a link for some people who already struggle with thyroid issues and who use AS.
