As Lyme Disease creates systemic inflammation in the body. It can become difficult for the small glands in the body to function properly. This is true for the hypothalmus, pineal gland, the thyroid, adrenals, etc.

Some Lyme patients immune system gets so dis-regulated that autoimmune thyroid conditions (Hashimoto's) can occur.
