On today’s episode of Jimmy Makes Science Simple on the LLVLC Show, Jimmy brings you a look at the latest research on Thyroid function, epilepsy, and more.

“It is commonly assumed that eating keto lowers thyroid function even without any scientific evidence showing that.”

 - Jimmy Moore

We kick off today’s episode with an April 7, 2021 study published in the European Journal of Preventative Cardiology entitled “Prevalence of diabetes and impact on cardiovascular events and mortality in patients with chronic coronary syndromes, across multiple geographic regions and ethnicities”: https://academic.oup.com/eurjpc/advan… Does heart disease lead to a greater risk of Type 2 diabetes?

In today’s second segment, Jimmy shares from an April 12, 2021 study published in the journal Neurological Sciences entitled “The effect of ketogenic diet on thyroid functions in children with drug-resistant epilepsy”: https://link.springer.com/article/10…. Does a ketogenic diet lower thyroid function?

In the third and final segment of today’s show Jimmy explores the idea of gut flora and its impact on using the keto diet to treat epilepsy. Jimmy shares from a June 2021 study (yes, that’s the right date) published in the journal Microbial Pathogenesis entitled “Gut flora and metabolism are altered in epilepsy and partially restored after ketogenic diets”: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33894…
