hi there - anyone else out there had the experience of having hashimotos for years then discovering they are coeliac? And if so did going strictly gluten-free have an impact on your need for thyroid medication? I've been on levothyroxine for decades (varying between 100-200mcg, it went up during pregnancy stayed up for a while after, now back to 100mcg). It's never been particularly troublesome and I have generally felt fine.
But I'm feeling definitely twitchy at the moment and am intrigued as to whether i might need to drop my levo dose further (got docs appt to do blood test in a couple of weeks). I've been strictly gluten free for 3 months, but pretty much gluten free for a year before that (I was diagnosed with coeliac 3 months ago but had suspicions for a good while before).
Anyone had similar? I had absolutely no idea until I had a look around here that gluten had any impact at all on thyroid disease. Is it generally acknowledged by GPs does anyone know?
thanks in advance
