I have had IBS-D for years. When diagnosed with Graves 5 years ago, it maybe got a bit worse, but after thyroidectomy returned to its preGraves baseline. Every time I see my GI doc, he always reminds me of the “brain-gut axis,” and he is absolutely right. The gut is like your second brain, and there is communication between the two. Too involved and complicated to go into here, but if you research it, I think it will answer some of your questions. I trust my GI doc. I no longer even see the endo, my internist or her nurse practitioner manage my thyroid replacement.
