My Hashimoto's may be causing some issues... that is true. My levels however, are the best I've seen them in a long time. Even my Free T numbers are actually fairly decent. They could maybe be a smidge higher, but typically if my levels look like they do now, I feel okay. Another issue, is that I am heavily perimenopausal, so I am almost leaning more towards that as the issue.  My gynecologist didn't think I needed HRT and wouldn't test my levels, and when I've asked about my huge, bloated tummy doctors just tell me to "eat less" or that my "body just likes being that size"   Total crap. 
I had a scratch test 2 years ago for gluten that was negative, but it also said shellfish was negative and I know for a fact that I cannot eat it or my throat closes up. I no longer trust what MD's do/say as being the only answers, which is why I sought out help elsewhere. I've spent too long feeling terrible, canceling plans, avoiding people, lying around, and just living a generally horrible existence.

I wasn't offended. I'm just frustrated! I went to this guy for "natural" help with my thyroid, thinking for months that something was wrong there, but it's clearly not that at all. 
I'm not sure why these tests are not "recognized by the medical community". I had them drawn by a lab and I've found info on them, online.  I wasn't even thinking about gluten issues or celiac or anything like that when I went to see him. I wanted my cortisol checked because no doctor will check that, and I was hoping for a more natural approach towards feeling better. 

I'll just wait for my appointment on Friday and see what happens at my appointment and take it from there...

Thyroid levels were all normal, as mentioned in original post. I've had thyroid disease for 13 years and am on meds and am very aware of where my levels should be with that. It's this gluten, celiac thing that I'm totally confused about.

I basically have no idea what you said in the rest of your response, but thanks for taking the time to respond to me so thoroughly!
