Hypothyroidism & MS
I am a male, 55 yrs and have had MS for 26 years. I started Avonex therapy about 5 years ago. I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism and am taking Lev.....25m. I understand there may be a connection between MS and thyroid disorders. I have also read there may be a connection between Avonex (Interferon B) treatment and hpothyroid. I also understand hypothyroidism is a auto-immune
disorder as is thought to be the case of MS.

Does the latest research lean towards hypothyroid resulting from MS or treatment with Avonex, or both?
