I am a non practising medic parents are doctors. This is where things get very frustrating. I have been diagnosed with autoimmune disorder a few months ago, hashimoto's thyroiditis and a goiter with a small nodule that is harmless. My thyroid function is normal, but I have a high volume of antibodies attacking my thyroid. Soon after I was diagnosed with asthma, and once I took steroid medication.. to no surprise it suppressed my immunity thus antibody count was back to normal. I have told my parents time and time again I truly believe there is a connection between the two.. but they are stubborn. They often tell me I overthink and am anxious, that I don't have chronic asthma, it was just a coincidence I have cough variant and exercise induced asthma. Somehow I don't think so and I think they are being indenial. Asthma is also a result of an overactive immunity, just like thyroid disorders. It is very frustrating they don't try to recognise this!!!!!! I just don't understand why they dismiss it. Has anyone else here had the same happen, diagnosed with thyroiditis and consequently discover they develop asthma too?
