Question: Is hypothyroidism or hypoparathyroidism associated with a poor immune system? Is hypothyroidism or hypoparathyroidism associated with a poor immune system? And especially when caused by Hashimoto's disease? I've heard is an autoimmune disease, which I imagine would affect one's immune system.

Answer: I don't think it's related to a poor immune system. I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism myself, and all my bloodwork was normal except for having a TSH level of 132. Other than my thyroid issue, I'm healthy as can be. I just hope the synthroid pills kick in soon :)
