Re: can thyroid problems cause yeast infections?

I believe that if you are very hypothyroid you can be prone to yeast infections. That is the only correlation that I know of.

Re: can thyroid problems cause yeast infections?

Isn't Candida a sort of yeast type fungus? I know you can get this with hypothyroid. I found out I had it by doing the following although not nice.

Before you go to bed place a glass of water beside you, in the morning, spit into the glass. Leave it while you shower, dress, have breakfast etc. Then go and check on it.

If the spit has started to skin and resembles a jelly fish, stringy hanging down you have candida.
