I posted before about how under-eating can cause hypothyroid, so it should be no surprise that the risk rates of women getting hypothyroid is parallel with the rates of calorie-restricting eating disorders in women:
"Women have 10 times the risk of hypothyroidism as men"
"Anorexia nervosa... is diagnosed approximately nine times more often in females than in males."
"Bulimia nervosa is nine times more likely to occur in women than men."
This is why almost all the people who are diagnosed with so-called "Adrenal Fatigue" also have hypothyroid, because "AF" is not a real condition, but a mistaken diagnosis of starvation due to calorie-restriction and that is what is causing their hypothyroid.
