Some researchers have suggested that functional immune deficiency is associated with hypothyroidism in the majority of children who suffer frequent infections [Barnes; Starr2005, pg 53]. Other causes of chronic childhood infections include overuse of antibiotics, and food allergies which prevent proper drainage of the ear.
