      Help - Newer Diet
      OMG. Let me know what you think.
      Just went to a nutritionist who put me on a new diet to help lower my cholesterol.
      Diet is already gluten free, but she added chia seeds, cod liver oil, coconut oil and bone broth.
      I have subsequently been in the bathroom all weekend with D.
      Is that likely from the diet?

      Thank you...this helps me a ton. I also heard from the wonderful pharmacist who does the gluten free drugs list and he said Synthroid is safe for celiacs to take.  Yay!

      Need Some Reassurance
      Have had celiac (biopsy diagnosed) for about 10 years...just learned I have subclinical hypothyroidism.
      Have the rest of you dealt with this? Any encouragement or advice? I follow a completely gluten free diet, no real stomach symptoms anymore. Will be taking a small dose of synthroid.
      Thanks again!

      Blurg - Synthroid - Need Advice.
      So my doc called - I have "subclinical hypothyroidism" - TSH is 4.4 and Free T4 is 0.9.
      She said we could treat it or wait a while. I said it's fine to treat. They are putting me on Synthroid - the brand name. Are any of you on this drug? Is it actually safe for a celiac?
     big a deal is subclinical hypothyroidism....ugh...I detest having another thing!

      Hi there!
      Been doing fine for a long time...occasionally glutened, but mostly okay!
      Not too many symptoms of hypo - I don't think - she was curious about testing it because I have some thought it would be a good idea to recheck it all and said it's a pretty simple fix (I HOPE - eek...kind of freaked to maybe have another issue going on, but figure it's probably not that big of a deal)...?

      Hi all...Checking in to say hi again...
      Curious...I've had biopsy-diagnosed celiac for about 11 years now and it seems that my thyroid is a teeny bit off.
      Is this common? (looks like my tsh is close to 3 or something like that...) They may put me on a pill to assist...

      Thank you for all of your answers. I feel that sertraline is an excellent medication, I'm sorry you had a poor experience.
      Greenstone is likely safe. And Lupin is the new generic that was recommended.

      Help - Sertraline Or Zoloft
      Hi guys:
      My doc is trying to make sure I"m on a correct dosage of the antidepressant zoloft - I had been prescribed the Greenstone brand but the pharmacist at Pfizer just told us that I should not take it because it has sodium starch glycolate and they cannot be sure if it is gluten free.
      Then Walgreens advised me to call my doctor. I have put in a call - do any of you know of a generic like zoloft that would be safe? or should i ask specifically for zoloft?
      I'm confused.
