I would also be very interested in this! I recently got the results of a thyroid test and my TSH is 6.32. I'm hoping that this does have an affect on MGD, because the thought of a distinctive and treatable diagnosis is very appealing. I have an appointment with an endochrinologist next week so I'll be asking her lots of MGD related questions!
Out of curiousity, Jesslin - did you get a thryoid test or a thyroid anti-body test? My GP has been reassuring me for years that I was subclinical, but my opthamologist ran an anti-body test which showed different (and more severe) results.
Like you, I have dry skin, while my face can seem quite oily on the surface but still dehydrated. I don't have much mebomian oil at all, and sometimes it tends to be very thick and affects my visions. The oil seems clear, unlike yours which sounds very uncomfortable!
I tried searching the interent for Thyroid info too and got very confused! There seem to be so many contradictions and differing opinions.
My thyroid peroxidase levels are 284, and they should apparently be below 5.6. I have no idea what that means though! I think I'll be bringing a notebook with me to my appointment next week to keep track of all these terms
