Lactose In Thyroid Meds

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I was diagnosed with celiac in 2005, IBS in the '60's and Hashimoto's thyroid in 1999. I recently had to change my thyroid meds because my antibodies had reached over 1,000. The pill, I discovered yesterday, has lactose and corn starch in it. Is it possible that the ingredients, due to an already compromised system, have a negative effect.

We also went out about two weeks ago and as soon as I got home, I had a serious bout of diarrhea. Now I spoke with the chief and let him know my limitation, but who knows.

Also, because the diet has it's limitation (I am also a vegatarian) does anyone thing it is possible to become allergic to the few grains that we can eat, and if so, what then.

Thanks for your response.

Marty

Yes you can become sensitive to other grains. Especially while your gut is healing. Armour contains corn starch. So it is more likely the lactose in your new pills that is a problem.

It could also be that your body utilized the natural hormones better than the synthetic. This is very common. I cannot take synthetic. And my Sister didnt do well on synthetic either until she added a small amount of Armour to her regular dose. Now my Mom is trying to get some Armour to add to hers after hearing how well we are doing with the natural.

From what I am seeing, a lot of vegetarian Celiacs are finding it hard to eat the alternative grains too. This sucks big time for you. I wish I knew what to tell you other than get to know squashes and potatoes more intimately.
