    Hi uday. I can’t speak specifically as to the connection between RA and hypothyroidism, other than to note that RA (and other autoimmune diseases) is prone to comorbidities and the hypothyroidism is one of the more common ones. This article from one of our contributors looks at hypothyroidism and RA: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/hypothyroidism/. Hopefully, continued research into the genes associated with these conditions will provide more information into the connections and treatments. Best, Richard (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team)
