Hello. Would having untreated Hypothyroidism affect the seroconversion of HIV? Would an 8 week test still be reasonably accurate? Thank you.

No; having hypothyroidism would have no effect on the accuracy of an 8 week HIV test result.

Even if it is caused by Hashimoto's Disease which is technically an autoimmune disorder? Sorry, I should have included that in my original post. I have heard that autoimmune disorders can cause delayed seroconversion. Thank you!

Nope...If you remain concerned over this, get another test at the 90 day mark (which is the recommended time for testing).
