Yep, I have hashimotos disease. I was diagnosed with it in 2000. Probably had celiac then and just didn't know it.

RA and Sjogrens. Gluten and soy free has almost eliminated the Sjogrens.

Hi! I know this question was posted several months ago, but I'm new here & just saw it.

I also have another autoimmune disease - one I didn't see listed among the other replies. I have Guillian-Barre. That's a terribly painfull & crippling autoimmune disease. I was in a wheelchair for several years because of that. After my celiac diagnosis & my new gluten free lifestyle, my GB has gotten much better. I'm even walking again! :)

Additionally, my "mystery anemia" has healed, & I haven't had a blood transfusion in nearly a year.

My biggest problem now is accidental gluten ingestion.

Although I read all ingredient labels, (as we all know) gluten hides under many false names.

Other times, I was accidentally "glutenised" by cross-contamination. Hence, I only eat food from my own kitchen now. Restaraunts are horrible cross-contaminators, as are the kitchens of friends & relatives - even when they try to be careful, & think they've decontaminated surfaces, they really don't know how to do that correctly.

I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis too. Had it for years - never need thyroid replacement though until I hit my thirties. Even to this day, I take a moderate dose. Always had constipation issues as a child and teenager - but I do not think when I was that young that people even attributed it to anything but not eating enough ruffage or vegetables. :(

Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sjogren's Syndrome, high Lupus indicators, Reynaud's in addition to Celiac. All the other have responded positively to strict gluten free.
