Just wondering if anyone has had success with eliminating gluten with Hashimotos?

      I've been gf/df since my diagnosis. I found it definitely helps with my stomach issues, makes me feel a lot less fatigued and full of joint pain. My layman understanding is that when gluten and dairy are broken down in your stomach they can get released into the bloodstream and at the molecular level, this so closely resembles thyroid tissue, that your body thinks your thyroid tissue is all throughout, triggering that autoimmune response. Since your body isn't just attacking and scarring your actual thyroid, but also everywhere else, this can aggravate an already difficult autoimmune condition. The bummer with eliminating gluten, is that you've got to be strict about it to see a difference. The plus is that there's a lot of great products and resources on how to make substitutions nowadays. Heck, you can eat a full diet of GF Oreos if you wanted, but I wouldn't recommend it more than a day or two 😊

      I try to avoid it when I can. I notice that I bloat less when I don't eat it.

      I’ve been gluten and dairy free for 2 years. Definitely helped with brain fog and inflammation.

      I always wondered about that🤔 In general I eat very little gluten. Personally I have not noticed a difference.
