After battling with autoimmune hypothyroidism for 2 years. No medication was working and i was almost diagnosed with M.E/ Chronic fatigue. but after cutting out gluten my health has taken a massive leap forward. I should mention it started when i developed blisters on the back of my thigh that resembled Pemphigus herpetiformis which is a symptom of celiac gluten intolerance. Im wondering if its possible that my intestine wasn't absorbing anything including my thyroid meds. I have just discovered that the cells of the gluten protein are almost identical to the cells on your thyroid hence why my thyroid became under attack later on. If only they had done a biopsy on my blisters first and diagnosed this my thyroid would have remained free from attack. hopefully i can reduce antibodies of my thyroid now as well!
