If O's have more of a tendency toward goiter.....what is the reason? Curiosity got me wondering if paleo people lived close to the sea, hence eating more fish, seaweed, etc.....but is that so? I don;t think so. If they ate more sea food it could have countered the goitrogenic vegetables that they may have eaten. Or is that the deal? They didn;t eat those? They just ate meat, eggs, and root vegetables?
I have a goiter....I thought it had diminished from the years of taking bladderwrack, but on further palpating....no it has not, maybe even grown....I'll have to have an endocrinologist check it.

Tons more but here are two.
Interesting link with pernicious anemia, it all goes back to the intestinal lining when it comes to the thyroid.

ah..., thanks for the links...the first one, though, shows that hyPERthyroid is more common in O's with hyPO being more common in A's....curious. however I got this goiter after a decade or so of vegetarianism.....(!!)
yet the second link connects goiter to type O.....interesting.
anyway...had it for a coupla decades now.....wonder if you can ever diminish one nonsurgically....taking bladderwrack everyday!

The thyroid and the GI tract are linked.

so far the Os I know with goiter issues were greatly helped following their lectin free plans

I think that any condition can be improved.  The key is finding the right nutrient balance to feed the body.

Jayneeo, Interesting ideas about people who live close to the sea. You got me wondering if some people's ancestors ate seafood everyday for thousands of generations so they didn't have a lack of Omega 3's and it also automatically balanced their thyroid but what happens if their descendants of today don't eat fish very often? Do their genes know how to make thyroid hormones and other necessary things on their own?

I am type O and had hyperthyroid (graves diseasse) in the early 90's when I was experimenting with vegetarianism.  I was also under a great deal of stress as my brother had a near fatal car accident.  

So .. a radio active-iodine pill later .. I'm now hypothyroid and childless (probably due to the RA pill, but no doctor will ever admit to it).

It's interesting that thyroid disorders linked to digestion (?).  Growing up my dad was a butcher and we always had steak and salad for dinner .. it wasn't until I moved out on my own that I decided to try to become a vegetarian.  Of course, a vegetarian meal to me was a huge cheese sandwhich with iceberg lettuce, mayo, and tomato .. lol.  No wonder I ended up with a health issue.
