I was diagnosed with celiac's about 20 months ago. For the most part the gluten free diet has made life alot better. However about a week ago my BP spiked to about 175/115 and my heart rate jumped to abot 115.My doctor tried to control the bp with varios medications without any benefit, He is now looking for other causes. I have read about celiacs and throid disease. I think this may be the issue. Does anyone have any insights on this?
I would definitely push hard for thyroid testing. I would not assume Grave's/hyperthyroid just because of the tachycardia, I suffered that with my hypothyroid/Hashimoto's disease. I've heard some people suggest that the hyperthyroid state of a Hashi's patient is actually caused by sudden release of thyroid hormone as glandular tissue is destroyed. I don't have science to back that up, but it makes sense.
A TSH and free thyroid levels will tell a lot, along with the antibodies. Thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin (TSI), thyroid receptor antibodies (TRAb), anti-thyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO) and anti-thyroglobulin (TgAb) are the ones that will differentiate. Often they'll do just the TSI and the TPO.
Hope you'll be feeling better soon and that your doc will get to the root of the issue.
