In this study of 161 people with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and 162 controls without thyroid problems researchers found those with thyroid disease were more likely to have low vitamin D levels that those with normal functioning thyroids. The authors of the study noted that more research is needed to determine if the low vitamin D levels cause thyroid disease or are a result of thyroid disease.
