Could Under active Thyroid and Crohn’s be connected

Credo profile image

This is my first Post and hope to be one of many, now that I have joined this community of people looking for answers.

I was diagnosed with Crohn’s and Under Active Thyroid in 1992,and always thought there was a connection somehow ,could it be possible ? This has been a bad year with other medical issues to deal with ,so will relate to that in my next post.

Crohn's is autoimmune in origin and having one autoimmune condition increases the likelihood of getting another so therefore could be linked to autoimmune/Hashimotos' thyroiditis therefore hypothyroidism.

Hi Kes8

Thankyou for your reply, I thought that might be the case. After all these years you just seem to live with them, and the ups and downs of different meds over the years.
