Can Hashimoto's Thyroiditis be caused by exposure to asbestos?
My three children and myself have all been diagnosed with hashimoto's and are on synthroid. One of my sons has been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 33.  Three years ago , my husband was diagnosed has having asbestosis. Could his having worked with asbestos all those years be the contributing factor in our health problems?

I have never heard of this connection...doesn't mean it isn't possible, but I haven't heard of it.

Hashi's runs in families.
