Is your gut affecting your thyroid - gut health, Hashimotos, Graves

Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (HT) or Graves’ disease (GD) anyone? Thyroid concerns anyone?⁠
These issues are commonly linked to a damaged intestinal barrier (leaky gut) and dysbiosis (bacteria imbalances). Further, both leaky gut and bacteria imbalances affect the availability of nutrients to the body, which in turn results in a poor functioning thyroid. ⁠
“Gut microbiota also influences the absorption of minerals that are important to the thyroid, including iodine, selenium, zinc, and iron. All of them are essential for thyroid function and there is a clear link between thyroid dysfunction and altered levels of these minerals.”⁠
“There is accumulating data that a strong thyroid–gut axis exists. It appears to display a not well known but important correlation regarding the effect of the gut bacteria on the immune system and thyroid function. Furthermore, there is higher prevalence of the coexistence of thyroid and gut related diseases, just as Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis/Graves’ Disease and Celiac Disease/Non-celiac wheat sensitivity. Dysbiosis is a common finding in thyroid disorders.”⁠
So, what's the solution? ⁠
Loading up on immunoglobulins initially can significantly improve nutrient absorption, correct bacteria imbalances, and help with leaky gut. ⁠
And then loading up on the right probiotics that have also shown to increase nutrient absorption/nutrient utilization, help address leaky gut, and help correct bacteria imbalances. Strains that can help with this include both S. boulardii and Bacillus strains such as B. subtilis, B. clausii, and B. coagulans. ⁠
As always, if motility issues exist, please address those first. ⁠
