Need Some Reassurance

Recommended Posts

Have had celiac (biopsy diagnosed) for about 10 years...just learned I have subclinical hypothyroidism.

 

Have the rest of you dealt with this? Any encouragement or advice? I follow a completely gluten free diet, no real stomach symptoms anymore. Will be taking a small dose of synthroid.

 

Thanks again!

It's pretty common, I actually was diagnosed with Hashimotos first. Just make sure the meds you take for it are also gluten free. Biggest problem really, is that you won't always know if the fatigue and joint pain comes from a accidental glutening or from under treated thyroid. Otherwise, it's really not a big problem for me to manage both It takes a few weeks to feel the results of the thyroid supplement, but you may not even realize how "bad" you felt, until you feel better!

You'll find a number of people on this board with thyroid issues. Most with Hashis. Did your Dr do the antibody tests? Anyway...do make sure that your medication is gluten free. Do give it a few weeks to see if you feel different. Take your medication on an empty stomach and don't eat for about 30 minutes after.

Likely your Dr has you coming in for repeat blood work in 6 weeks or so. By then you might feel some difference in how you feel. Like Sharon said it's sometimes hard to tell what's affecting us. The thyroid impacts the whole body. Recently I was having daily headaches. No clue why. I finally went in and had my thyroid blood work checked and my TSH was 8.16! My Dr increased my medicine and now finally about 3 weeks later I'm feeling better.

Hang in there! I know that you feel discouraged having another diagnosis. So many of us feel that way...there's something else wrong with me! But you will be just fine and with the thyroid medication will be feeling better soon.

Thank you...this helps me a ton. I also heard from the wonderful pharmacist who does the gluten free drugs list and he said Synthroid is safe for celiacs to take.  Yay!

I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's a little over 3 years ago.. It's annoying, but not the worst thing ever. I just went in yesterday to get my levels checked and I'll probably have to up my dose. It's just that you can go for a year or two on the same dose and then suddenly it's not enough sometimes, and you just get it adjusted. 


Diagnosed with Hashimoto's 2/2012. Thyroid tumor removed 4/2012. Positive AGA IGA blood test 3/2012.

I came at it the other way. I have had thryroid disease (hypo) for 15-20 years, and just got diagnosed with celiac early this year.  Both under control and feeling much better.  I think I may have had undiagnosed celiac for a number of years.
