Possibly a ridiculous question.
I've seen smoking come up in conversations about Thyroid Disease. It's controversial I guess - some think it can suppress symptoms. Others think that starting or stopping is what triggered their thyroid issues.
My question simply is whether anyone has discovered either smoking or vaping to be an Antibody trigger in Hashimoto's?
I stopped smoking about 3yrs ago and it's right afterwards I started noticing my symptoms. I stopped by vaping and I still vape now. No nicotine in it. Guess it's just another habit. I just wonder if possibly it is a trigger of antibodies and wondered if anyone else ever thought the same or discovered it to be true?
