I have type 2 diabetes/ insulin resistance and hashis so my diet is already quite restricted. I find most gluten free offerings in cafes etc is high in sugar and so avoid. As I understand it the reason to avoid gluten is because if consumed by someone who has hashis the body produces antibodies which attack the thyroid gland. However I have had hashis fr over 20 yrs and a thyroid scan revealed that my thyroid gland has been destroyed and the doc told me it will no longer be producing any hormone. In this case is there any point in avoiding gluten?
