Has anyone heard that Hypothyroid and allergies can be related? I read an article about this and was wondering if it was true. Suddenly out of nowhere I started developing allergies at 16 or 17 yrs, it started with gluten, then bananas, chemicals and now more recently (10 years later) dairy, green tea and hayfever. My dad has a hypothyroid so I guess i might be at risk, also his sister has a bleeding disorder (can't remember the name), I do as well but was told it was nothing to worry about. I have noticed that I have most of the symtoms listed which I thought where due to my allergies, and they could be but I should be feeling better as I do not eat anything I am allergic to anymore. I went to the doctor the other day and asked to have my thyroid tested, he sent me for a blood test called TFT which I'll get the results next week. From everyone elses experience, is this the only test that can be done? Thanks for your help.
