Re: High antibodies and unexplained rashes
Dog, I know that there is a connection between hives and hypothyroidism, especially hashi's. This is a quote from an allergy site:
"Patients with chronic urticaria (hives) have an increased frequency of Hashimoto's thyroiditis. An association has been noted with the presence of antibodies to thyroglobulin, or a microsomal-derived antigen (peroxidate) even if patients are euthyroid. The incidence of thyroid autoantibodies in patients with chronic urticaria is approximately 24%. Thyroid function and thyroid antibodies should be checked in all patients with chronic urticaria. There are no data to suggest that either of these antibodies are pathogenic in terms of hive formation and it is believed that these are associated, parallel, autoimmune events."
It could also be an issue that now that you're hypot you're hypersensitive and you're having a reaction to something.
A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.
