I have high antibodies and I have hypothyroidism. I have just been tested for Coeliac disease because a close relative has it as well as hypothyroidism and has suffered for many years with chronic rheumatoid arthritis. I tested negative for Coeliac thank God.
However the reason I wanted to be tested is because I also have severe arthritic pain and I just wondered if I had the same. However, now I know Im negative but I also know that people with auto immune disease are better if they stay away from gluten.
Can someone tell me the reasoning about this because I try to stay clear as much as I can due to the fact that my arthritis and joints are much worst if I have a period of time eating gluten or even too many carbs.
Does anyone know what might be causing this and why it seems to be related to hypothyroidism.
