Breasfeeding

Hi.

I've recently posted about my recent results and got some really helpful feed back so wanted to say thank you for that.

But, I'm just wondering if breastfeeding can effect thyroid issues at all? I've been breastfeeding for nearly four years and potentially have a pituitary or central thyroid issue. Set to have my thyroid checked again in 6 weeks but hopefully having some more tests such as ft3 and antibodies too. I'm quite annemic at the moment and I'm taking iron 2x daily.

Just wondering if breastfeeding could be effecting anything at all.
