Hello people, this is my first post here. I stumbled across this site whilst trying to research if there were links between severe gum disease (periodontal) and having hypothyroidism. Wondered if there was any research going on anywhere. I was diagnosed a few years ago after being ill for a long time, but now happy and well again taking levothyroxine. However, I have severe gum disease and have lost one tooth and am about to lose another. I read a couple of US articles that suggests there may be a link, but wondered if anyone knew of anything UK based as I'd happily help with research Thanks
