Infections with Hashis

At the moment I have got a really painful chest infection and cold sore and it's got me thinking. I've never had a cold sore since being diagnosed 5 years ago so does the fact I seem to be picking up infections now mean that my immune system is a bit slow and if so, how would that impact on Hashis?

I have started the autoimmune diet again today as I'm fed up of feeling ropey :-(

I really don't know whether a low immune system impacts in any way on Hashimoto's. Mega dosing vitamin C during an infection will help build up your immune system.
