    Yes! I have had symptoms on meds since my 20's. Sometimes just more manageable than others.

    Just went in for a follow up with some additional lab work today. I don't have results back but what was new and interesting to me, which I thought might be of some help is that I was told an overgrowth of candida (yeast) has been found to have a direct correlation to autoimmune thyroiditis and other autoimmune diseases. I'm being started on a yeast inhibitor and certain probiotic to see if this might help with my symptoms. Have any of you heard of this correlation?

      I haven’t heard this exactly, but I have heard several times to pay close attention to gut health when it come to autoimmune disorders.
