I don't know if any of you have heard of Sara Wilson who has a book out called "I Quit Sugar For Life". I have just been browsing her website and came upon this under the heading " Does quitting sugar heal autoimmune disease?"
...."So the simple answer is this: Quitting sugar has had the biggest impact on my AI, more so than my medication or any other medical fix (and, trust me, I’ve tried everything). In the past three years, I’ve been able to better manage my AI, but also – yes – heal and reverse the damage.
I have zero thyroid antibodies now.
I’m on the most minimal dosage of thyroxin.
My hormone levels have fallen back into the right range"
What do you make of that? Giving up gluten hasn't been that much of problem but giving up sugar? Totally?! If I knew for definite it would get me back to normal I think I would do it.
