B12, Hypothyroid And Cd

Hello everyone,

This message board has really helped me learn more about the disease. I have been having symptoms for a long time but was never diagnosed and always ignored by doctors. My maternal grandmother was finally diagnosed which led me to start asking questions.

I have just been told that I have extremely low B12 vitamins and am hypothyroid. I was wondering if others had experienced similiar conditions. I went gluten-free for two weeks to test for myself and noticed a difference in my energy and stomach issues. I am currently WAITING to be seen by a specialist and have to continue to eat gluten so that my test results will come back appropriately.

I am finding this very frustrating as I have to wait 2 months to even see a doctor! Just wondering if really low B12 and hypothyroid sound familiar to the disease. Thanks for any comments.

Kayleigh :rolleyes:

There is a well established connection between hypothyroidism and celiac, as well as nutritional deficiencies.

I have Hypothryroidism and refused to go on Synthroid or other perscription thyroid replacement med's. Instead I got tested for celiac disease because it runs in my family and can trigger hypothyroidism. So when my results (entrolabs) came back positive for Gluten Intolerance and Casien Intolerant I wend gluten-free and kinda CF. It made a big difference. I went to a nurtritionist and started taking Thyrophin PMG which supports the Thyroid. Anyway I am doing good and need to go in and get my blood test for my Thyroid function takin' again.

Hi Kiwik. I have had the vitamin B deficiency for many years, I'm borderline hypo-thyroid not on meds and have T1 diabetes.
