Detailed Answer
Hi Dear !!
Welcome back.
Thanks for the query. I still didn't get answers for questions I had asked.

I will try to answer your new query.
YES,Thyroid and diabetes does have effect on breathing capacities due to subdued energy demand in case of thyroid deficiency leading to obesity which reduces breathing span with stress on oxygen demands from obese body.

With toxic thyroid, increased oxygen demand from excessive body metabolism would cause suffocation or shortness of breath in such cases.

So is about diabetes, which makes oneself prone to obesity thus causing stressed breathing in such cases.

Awaiting further information as asked above for further suggestions about the occasional suffocation and tight stomach in your case.

Do report Me above asked information for further suggestions on your earlier main health issues.

Welcome for any further query in this regard.

Good Day !!
