Thyroid Problems/Leaky gut

Question
Hi doctor... I have some concerns involving hyperthyroidism and leaky gut. I have a family history of hyperthyroidism and I also have sever food allergies and digestive issues.I have been tested many times for hyperthyroidism and Graves' disease... All results always come back normal. I have changed my diet and am working towards fixing my digestion. So my concerns are this.... I know that to have a healthy thyroid your digestion must also be working properly.... So is my thyroid being affected by my digestion but still working properly ?are there other specific tests I should do to see if it is being affected? Also... If thyroid is being affected but all results are normal will I have thyroid symptoms?Hope this makes sense .. Thank you for any help

Answer
Hello Linda Yorio!
Warm welcome to you!
Leaky gut normally is linked with inflammatory bowel disease and many allergic conditions. The auto immune antibodies produced in these inflammatory reactions can alter the function of thyroid to great extent. It would be very helpful if you post any of your recent test reports.

Take care. Have a great day. Bye.
