Hyperthyroid and acne

Recommended Posts

Went to the doctor for some routine stuff...Was convinced I had candida, and indeed did have a yeast infection in my mouth. However, when my blood work came back, it suggested a sub hyperthyroid problem. Now I get to in for lots of testing.

My question is, since your thyroid is linked to your hormones, could this be causing my skin issues?

i was diagnosed with hyperthroidism last year, i had treatment which temporaily made me hypo i didn't see any affects with my acne and oiley skin unfortuantely. The hyperthroidism in my case was just a seperate entity. Essentially i think its either down to your pituary gland or the thyroid porducing to much of the T hormone and this just speeds up the bodies metabolism. It maye help with your acne? whos knows, good luck to ya
