The connection between Type I and II diabetes with thyroid disorders is quite evident. People who had Hashimoto’s or any thyroid disorder were found to be more likely to develop Type I diabetes, Type II diabetes or Dysglycemia.
Having an autoimmune condition opens windows for other such immune disorders to develop. For example, Type I diabetes may be linked to development of Hashimoto’s and vice versa.
There were a triad of factors explained by Dr. Alession Fasano known to cause autoimmunity: genetics, environmental factors and permeability of the intestines. Healing any of the three can alleviate other triggers.
Most of the time, reversing damage that has been done to one’s thyroid by antibodies is an uphill task, or any other tissue. Finding what caused autoimmunity is the best way to relieve oneself of immune attacks on an organ. This especially works for people who were suffering from Hashimoto’s.
What is causing this issues?
A common cause of autoimmunity is a leaky gut epithelium alias intestinal permeability. This may allow penetration of foreign substances into vasculature which causes your body to mount an immune attack against its own tissues. Remedies that heal the gut can work for any autoimmune condition.
Being able to detect the onset of Type I diabetes can still preserve functioning of beta cells. Some of the environmental triggers in Hashimoto’s include malnutrition, allergies to food, and reduced capability to manage stress.
Thyroid disorders and diabetes can both be caused by nutrient deficiencies and food allergies. Eating more food doesn’t necessarily cause over-nourishment. Thyroid hormones control the rate of metabolism which equates to some sort of blood insulin control. Low thyroid hormone productions can alter how one’s body processes carbohydrates, which is common to people with thyroid disorders.
Thyroid hormones stimulate glucose production by the liver. Therefore, everybody should go regularly to check whether they have normal thyroid activity.
