Thyroid Medictaions? Levoxyl?

19 May 2015 - 08:02 AM

Hi everyone!

 

It's been a while since I've been on here. Just a little background info on me..I've been strictly gluten-free for 6 years now and feeling really great on the diet, but now all the sudden my celiac symptoms have returned in the last six weeks. I have a gluten free kitchen.. but the only gluten I have is the cat and fish food, but I wash my hands right after all the time.. I have acid reflux, feeling tired, brain fog, sore throat, having a pain on my left side under my rib cage and I lost 10 pounds in the last month. I am really slender and now I'm down to 103, so the weight loss is a little scary for me. I now started Boost to try to gain some weight back and I'm only maintaining.. The only thing I changed in my diet is I added Almonds by the company Wonderful. I started them about 6 weeks ago. I eat mostly whole foods, too. I am really sensitive so I know my limits on gluten free processed foods. I don't eat many at all. I did call the Almond company, Wonderful, and they said there is no chance of CC. I'm not sure if I believe them though.. I did stop eating them about 2 weeks ago. I feel a little better but still not 100%. I feel like I just got glutened again two days ago on steak that I make all the time.. ugh..  I stopped all my vitamins about two weeks ago too just in case. I take Kirkman Labs and I've been taking them for the last four years without issues. So I have a lot of trust in that company.

 

So now the only thing I'm questioning is my thyroid medication. I am currently taking Levothyroxine by Lannett and I've been taking them for two years without issues. They say they are gluten free, but of course don't test for gluten. I know it seems highly unlikely since I've been taking them for two years without a reaction, but this is the only thing I can think of that I may be getting CC. I eat mostly whole foods and I stopped everything else.

 

So my question is what thyroid medications are everyone taking? I called my endo doctor and told them the situation and they're going to call in Levoxyl made by Pfizer for me just to try and see if my gluten reactions go away. I was on Levoxyl before and didn't have problems with it, but it's always a little nerve racking to change these meds, especially when you have to take them everyday. Is anyone currently taking Levoxyl without any problems?

 

Thanks so much for your help everyone!

 

P.S. Sorry about my typo in Medication.. This is my brain fog kicking in... LOL..
