I don't think the thytoid is the cause of CH's, but I do think that the hormone produced by the thyroid has a controlling effect on whether or not we have a CH. I think that we who suffer from CH's are the verge of having one and not having one at all times. This would help explain why one could be started by a trigger so insignificant that we don't recognize it. That's also the reason that I think something else could cause us to lean toward not having a CH, such as a small reduction in our thyroid hormone. A normal level of this hormone in a normal person is ideal, but I think a normal level in a person who has CH's can actually cause the CH to occur. My reduction in Synthroid was so small that it shouldn't have affected anything, but it was enough to stop my CH's. Even with the small reduction in dosage I am still within the normal range.
