In Response To: Re: A great abstract on thyroid TSH and glycoproteins (Patti)
A lot of sugars found in the body are the products of conversions of other sugars, so what we eat is not necessarily the same thing found in a particular tissue glycoprotein. However, we probably could learn a whole lot more about how the sugars/carbohydrates we do eat end up.
I have Hashimoto's hypothyroidism and I take bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosis) without ill effect (after starting cautiously) because P D'A commented that it contained some fucose sugar (which I don't normally ingest much of). However, since my type-O blood cells have been coated with fucose since conception, I assume I also metabolise fucose out of something very fundamental in my system or diet. (there's a topic good for a few hours in the library!)
You might want to look up in ER4YT and in the website stored info what P D'A has to say about ketosis, in which proteins and fats are metabolised into ketones, which can be used instead of dietary sugars.
What seemed a key implication to me was that the neuraltransduction pathways involving TSH are partially glycoprotein-specific and that lectins can inhibit them.
