Turkey is gluten-free as long as it is not stuffed. You can make a good gluten-free stuffing using gluten-free bread. Dry the bread first and add what ever spices or veggies you wish, but cook it in a separate baking dish because stuffing the bird with it can cause bacteria to breed. And gravy must be thickened with corn starch or potato starch instead of wheat flour.
so you can't even cook without stuffing inside turkey and not get gluten? Sorry I'm not familiar with turkey and wondering if I can have it while rest of family gets stuffing? In other words is turkey gluten free?
Although you didn't get a complete thyroid panel, from what I see you are hypothyroid. Most Dr's only care about TSH and yes yours is in the range, but when mine is that high I get terrible joint aches. I feel best with mine around 1. Your free T4 isn't just a tad low...most people feel best with it around 50% of the range. I think you could benefit from some thyroid replacement medication. You should also get a full thyroid panel...in addition to what you've had done a free T3, TPOAB and TgAb. The last 2 are antibody tests. Hashimotos is found fairly frequently with celiac.
Low vitamin D can also cause aches. It would be really good to have your levels checked again. Until you are healed you may not absorb it well enough so it's good to keep supplementing. It took me a year and a half gluten free to get mine to an acceptable level for my Dr and he's keeping me on 2000 daily for maintenence.
For the numbness and tingling my Dr had me add magnesium as I was having horrible tingling in my feet and my B12 was good. I have to say it has helped a lot.
I hope you are able to get this figured out...I would definitely start with a complete thyroid panel and recheck of Vitamin D. Here's a bit of reading on thyroid stuff if you have time. Hugs!
