The Connection Between Thyroid Disease & IBS-Dr Hagmeyer Do you meet the criteria for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and can’t find relief? Do you look pregnant thanks to a bloated belly? Are chronic diarrhea or constipation your constant companions? If so, you may be a victim of stubborn gut bacteria, also known as small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). SIBO can worsen Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism. These symptoms also can be worsening your Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, an autoimmune disease that attacks and destroys the thyroid gland. Bacterial gut infections such as SIBO constantly activate the immune system, which can make it difficult to manage autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism.
