I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis but I have been getting an increase in the number of infections and I don't know why since I've been taking my thyroid medication as directed by my GP.
Urinary - kidney stones, frequent UTIs, LUTS (Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms), cystitis, leukocytes and proteinuria.
Gastrointestinal - diarrhoea, constipation, acid reflux, nausea, weight loss - I was on a gluten-free and dairy-free diet but the anti-TPO antibodies only increased in number, not reduced.
Reproductive - heavy and dark periods, irregular cycles, painful periods, excessive discharge from vagina (I can actually feel it dribbling out and when I look there are massive drops of it), vaginal soreness. Note: I am not sexually active or pregnant.
Other - recurring sore throats and fungal infections.
Could I possibly have an immunodeficiency caused by the Hashimoto's? And if so would an immunologist be better placed to help me rather than my own endocrinologist?
