I haven't posted for ages but quick summary- I was diagnosed with Hashi's after giving birth 3 years ago. I started a strict gluten free diet in Feb 2016. I'm on 125mcg levo. Have previously had private bloods but cannot afford to do it regularly.
Recently, I went on holiday to country where it was almost impossible to avoid wheat and so I ate it and spent most of the time with tummy ache and diarrhoea after eating gluten.
I have no idea if GF helps my thyroid. I can't 'feel' when I have a flare up and I'm always exhausted as I have two young children that don't sleep. So, is it worth it? It seems I'm building up an intolerance to it- am I not just creating another problem? I understand it has to be 'all or nothing' so I guess there is little point being mostly gluten free.
I'd love to hear other peoples thoughts and experiences... or any new research people have found? I'm finding it hard to justify to people around me when it seems like a self induced intolerance for no obvious thyroid benefit.
