Dietary proteins, cholesterol and thyroxine: a proposed mechanism

Dietary proteins, cholesterol and thyroxine: a proposed mechanism

Journal of Nutritional Science and Vitaminology 36 Suppl 2: S101-S104

Animal proteins are known to be hypercholesterolaemic relative to plant proteins. Although this effect of dietary protein has been shown in many species, the mechanism is not known. The present review explores the relation between dietary proteins and plasma thyroxine concentrations. Data are presented showing that feeding animal proteins consistently depresses plasma thyroxine levels.
