    underactive thyroid and thrush


    I was diagnosed two weeks ago with underactive thyroid after visiting my doctor about recurrent bouts of thrush. This all came as a bit of a shock because I was expecting some thrush medication not to have to take a tablet for the rest of my life!
    I have now been researching underactive thyroid on the net and have found no reference to thrush being a symptom so think my Doc was pretty switched on to make the connection.
    As I said i have been on the medication for two weeks and my thrush has been really bad,how long until i see an improvement. i dont think i have any other symptoms of hypo as i have always had thin hair, always felt the cold so dont know what other improvements the medication will make to my life. i just want the thrush to go away as it is so painful

    It depends how low your thyroid function is, to how long it takes, there is a connection with thyroid and thrush and I have heard this before,

    It's good your got a diagnosis though, fingers crossed you will well and thrush free soon..
