  1. Forget the doctor!  You've diagnosed yourself.
  2. Anti-Depressants!

    Prozac was a disaster for me.  None of the BigPharma anti-depressants fit well with human biochemistry.  Consider the advice from Kent Holtorf MD: T3 (active thyroid hormone) is the best anti-depressant there is.  Many celiacs have the gluten-triggered autoimmune syndrome Hashimotos, which permanently destroys the thyroid if you have it for a long time.
  3. Gluten destroyed my thyroid because it triggered Hashimoto's.  I'll never have normal thyroid levels without T3+T4 supplementation. I have a friend whose Islet cells were destroyed by gluten.  He is now diabetic and has to take insulin. The problem is that most people proceed to destruction because American doctors never look for autoimmune disorders until it is too late.
  4. If gluten is killing your thyroid, then getting some of your thyroid function back WILL help mental health, esp. Anxiety and depression.
  5. Thyroid is so important to conception, and carrying a baby. Celiac so often whacks thyroid. Make sure you have a first-class doc looking at yours.
  6. Struggle Steet

    Do you know whether gut dysbiosis set off Hashimoto's that whacked your thyroid? Very common. Unfortunately MDs aren't very good at diagnosis and treatment. Check out the web to see what Kent Holtorf, Mary Shomon, and Dana Trentini have to say.
  7. Allopathic medicine wastes lots of time and money. Try a naturopath, it worked for me (after 12 years wasted with MDs)
  8. The first symptom of celiac I got was backpain that put me in chiropractor-land for years. After 24 years of this, I got a diagnosis of degeneration at L5-S1 and herniation at L4-L5. Celiac causes deficiencies that cause this. In my case, the key deficiencies were hypothyroid (via Hashimotos) and hypoprotein. After going gluten-free, got pain relief by fixing thyroid (T3+T4) and protein (free essential amino acids blend). Use many other supplements too for insurance.
  9. I use the MegaFood brand food-based multivitamin, the one labeled "men over 40 one daily". I think they have a similar product for women.
  10. TSH in "normal limits" proves nothing. A doctor who doesnt examine all of. TSH FT3 FT4 rT3 TG+TPO antibodies, at a minimum, isnt really diagnosing. Take a look at sites like
  11. Use.levoxyl. Guaranteed gluten-free. See Add T3 if necessary, to get your FT3 at least to mid-range. I use T3 as cytomel, cuz it is also gluten-free.
  12. New Here: Tiny Home, Husband Eats Gluten, Etc.

    Why does your husband think eating gluten is so important? He needs to support you by going gluten-free, which will make things simpler.
  13. Everyone knows that males are doctor-avoiders. They just arent too bright when it comes to health issues. Don-t flame me, I am a male.
  14. Anti-Depressants!

    You might want to check Many celiacs have hypothyroidism. Make sure yours is checked by a doc competent to diagnose hypoT (many are not). Keep in mind that T3 is a better anti-depressant than all of the Big Pharma anti-depressants.
  15. Vitamin Supplements

    Since celiac results in malabsorption, you probably need supplementation. Most MDs are clueless about this. One specific suggestion: if celiac has triggered Hashimotos autoimmunity, you need a trace mineral supp that will normalize iodine,selenium,zinc ... Necessary for thyroid function.
