Bile Metabolism and Thyroid Health with Dr. Eric Balcavage

Dr. Eric Osansky DC, IFMCP

Optimized thyroid hormones are a critical component of healthy gut function. They play a crucial role in stomach acid production, bile acid production, and the release of pancreatic enzymes and bile into the GI tract.

Bile’s functions extend far beyond digestion. Produced by the liver and concentrated in the gallbladder, bile plays a pivotal role in detoxification, has antimicrobial properties, and is involved in the metabolism and regulation of thyroid hormones.

This interconnectedness between thyroid health and bile metabolism means that on your healing journey, it’s essential to consider the impact on and influence of each one on the other.

Today I’m joined by a repeat guest, Dr. Eric Balcavage, to talk about the connection between thyroid function and bile physiology. We discuss the functions of bile, its importance for thyroid hormone regulation, risks associated with excessive bile acid supplementation, factors affecting T3 levels, the significance of bilirubin levels, the importance of addressing underlying health issues, and more. Enjoy the episode!
