Brief Answer: No links... Detailed Answer: There is no specific link between the general inflammatory condition (or condition like IBS, endometriosis and circulation issues or with food sensitivity) and hypothyroidism. Though at times hyperthyroid can lead to symptoms like Irritable bowel syndrome. Mostly hypothyroidism is of autoimmune disorder (like hypothyroidism due to Hashimato's thyroidities) and any coexisting autoimimmune disorder like Diabetes, Chronic rheumatoid arthritis may coexist with condition of hypothyroidism if that is due to Hashimato's thyroid disorder.
