Can Taking Probiotic Supplements Make an Autoimmune Thyroid Condition WORSE?

I’ve had stomach distress for years (constipation, bloating, gas pains, etc) and a dietitian recommended I try taking a probiotic supplement. I already eat yogurt every single day, but was going to give the supplements a try. I read that they also improve your immune system. However, I was recently diagnosed with thyroiditis (my Dr thinks it’s Hashimoto’s thyroid), which is an autoimmune disorder where your body basically attacks the thyroid. So if I take these probiotics, could it make my condition worse since it will enhance my immune system?

Thanks for any advice or information you can give.

    As far as I know taking probiotics will not affect your thyroid problem.
