hi - I have hashimotos and have had it for 15 years. I am on levothyroxine 125mcg/100mcg alternate days. Generally I have been well on this regime. What I am enquiring about is the hashimotos and coeliac connection. I have not had any gut problems with my underactive thyroid until now - although last blood test was within range for B12, ferritin and slightly low vitamin D - which I take a vit D tablet each day.
Recently I have been having diarrhoea and my tongue has been sore/swollen/bumpy for a long time - do others have this and do you think it is because of gluten intolerance? Should I be tested for coeliac or try a gluten free diet anyway?
Also what I would like to know is if you go on a gluten free diet and your intestines heal does that mean you are then able to absorb vitamins/iron/B12 normally?
