Jeanne...your post above said Celiac can cause hypothyroid? Wow. I don't have Hashimotos, but I have been hypothyroid for over 20 years and it's been a struggle to get it under control. I haven't been tested for celiac yet but I have so many of the symptoms (especially the gastrointestinal ones...ugh) I'm pretty sure I have it. I never thought that going gluten free would be good for the thyroid. Definitely something to think about.

Searching for "autoimmune celiac"

I get this hit:

NDDIC Celiac Disease Info


What other health problems do people with celiac disease have?

People with celiac disease tend to have other diseases in which the immune system attacks the body’s healthy cells and tissues. The connection between celiac disease and these diseases may be genetic. They include

* type 1 diabetes
* autoimmune thyroid disease
* autoimmune liver disease
* rheumatoid arthritis
* Addison’s disease, a condition in which the glands that produce critical hormones are damaged
* Sjögren’s syndrome, a condition in which the glands that produce tears and saliva are destroyed

So, a nice little list of fun things we can expect. There are other lists with different disease listed. A search on "celiac associated condition" or "celiac related condition" will bring some up.

Ain't we got fun! Yes, but no bananas! :D

Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."
Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and hard work. have a good day! :-) Paul
