    I was diagnosed hypothyroid last nov and low dose of Levo i have noticed I have catarrh and cough past couple of months which has made my asthma worse as my asthma has always been under control. Have read increase in catarrh and asthma can be a symtom of  hypothyroidism.  However what your describing sounds different you need to check it out with Dr

    Hello Ricky:

    My name is Shelly and I am a nurse in the USA.  I have Hashimoto's thyroid disease.

    Phlegm that is green is usually a bacterial infection. Normal mucus should be clear to light yellow.  If it is brown it can be blood tinged.  If it is green it can be a virus or even a bacteria that is causing it. Pneumonia is just one infection that can cause green mucus.

    See your GP they can get a sample in a sterile cup and send it off to the lab for analysis.

    Regards,

    Shelly
