What’s articles are you referencing?  Armour Thyroid does not contain gluten.   I have taken it for over 20 years and my small intestine has healed.  
 

You could have an intolerance to any of the inactive ingredients.  But it should not be a reaction causing celiac disease to flare.

I used to take Armour, and I was fine.  Then they switched me to Naturethroid, and it was recalled lately.  So they put me back on Armour, and I had a reaction.  I took Armour for 10 years!!  Read an article, and it said it wasn't gluten-free.  But thanks.

What article?  Please cite it (provide a link).  
 

Porcine thyroid products are being recalled lately due to raw material supply issues.  This has pretty much impact all non-synthetic thyroid medications.  Thank you pandemic!   If you are having a celiac disease reaction, report it to the FDA.  It could be that you are reacting to the inactive ingredients that may have changed.

This is a good site to search the ingredients used in drugs:

Results:

It looks like Allergan's version is gluten-free:
