Post Any one w/ U.C.?

I am very curious to see if any of you that are hypo have any gastro. issues? My 13 year old son has been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. Although he has never been tested for any thyroid issues, I am seeing some complaints from him that mimic my thyroid symptoms. I will have him tested next doctors visit, but was wondering if anyone has this problem?

I have had Gastritis for about a year or so, prior to HypoT/Hashi diagnosis. I believe I have read that since the thyroid helps regulate the rate of digestion, food can stay in the stomach longer than usual, and can cause issues. I'm not sure which issues would be likely from thyroid disorders, and which not.

I would just guess bloating, gas, and of course, constipation. Not sure about my gastritis, or your UC.
My opinions only, not medical advice. Always follow advice of your Doctor, not what I say here.

I seem to have many bouts of acid indigestion and take the acid reduction tablets on a very regular basis.(every 9 hours) what you mentioned about food staying in the stomach longer, does make sense. Since I have a sort of 'blockage' aka goiter it seems (soon to have ultra sound and CT scan) the food painfully seems to sit right front and centre. then acid starts....

I have IBS/C. Since I have been DXed with hypoT, it has gotten much worse. And the Armour has only made it worse.
