what are some additional conditions caused by hypothroidism
dusan123 posted:
I was FINALLY diagnosed with Hypothyroidism @ 6 yrs. ago. Since then, different conditions are arising. First, I discovered I had became Gluten intolerant, and recently I have become B 12 deficient. These are symptom/ conditions that I have had to research and take to my doctor, only then would they do 'testing' which confirmed it! However, the one continuous symptom that I can not prove is fatigue. One test shows very low results, then the next test shows normal!!!

Back to my original question that I am asking is, what other conditions are POSSIBLY going to eventually arise? Perhaps if I had some ideas, I would not have to search and 'fight' so hard and have so many un-needed testing and just go to usable tests.

Is that WITH medication?
dusan123 replied to audi920's response:
Yes, this is with medication. I know of and have experienced the 'normal' effects of hypothyroidism ie: brain fog, fatigue, memory problems etc. ..The standard or most common effects of this ailment, the ones that are listed whenever you look it up
I am looking for info on the not so notable effects, such as the gluten intolerance, the B-12 deficiently and ???????
Thank you for responding!
