Cool Can caffeine affect the thyroid?

I'm curious to know if caffeine has any negative effects on the thyroid? Is so, how much caffeine, and how does it affect it?

Re: Can caffeine affect the thyroid?

I have always drank coffee after taking my thyroid meds with a half a glass of water. Haven't noticed any effect on thyroid hormones, for me anyway.

I don't think it does but if you've got adrenal problems it can negatively affect them. I only drink decaf since I've got high cortisol levels.

Yes, the caffiene can stress your adrenals.
