This study suggests that bacteria from probiotics and foods with bacterial cultures like yogurt may colonize the small bowel in some, leading to SIBO, brain fog, fatigue after eating, and other symptoms. Lactobacilli can cause d-lactic acidosis by fermenting carbohydrates in the food. Researchers concluded that high lactate levels in subjects explained their neuropsychological symptoms like brain fog/fatigue.
This comparative study found that patients with euthyroid Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (not caused by thyroid function abnormality) and euthyroid goiter had a higher predisposition to major depression and anxiety disorders than the healthy control group.
Patients with multinodular goiter and impaired acid secretion (either with H. pylori-related gastritis, atrophic gastritis, or both) required a higher dose of oral thyroxine than the control. This suggests normal gastric acid production is necessary for effective absorption of the hormone.
