Hi Sorry Not Been Here For A While Need Your Help

Recommended Posts

Hello guys hope your all okay...its mand..xx

Okay, now I am still not counting out celiac as I have strange rashes or patches of dry itchy skin in little clusters which looks like herpes on my body in different places , chest, back, leg..looks like exma but more like herpes - does taht sound like DH to you??

The secnd thing is -wheni do the diet I have a whole other load of stuff that happens which teh doctors think is my hormones..

So my belly feels a bit better with the candida and celiac diet but then I get:

Big puffy face (moon Face)

Weight Gain

Constant weeing after every glass of water

Heat intolerances - my wholebody sweats if only a bit warm

Palms of hands keep shriveling up likebeenin a pool for hours and tthen the skin goes very tight and flakes -this happens at teh same time as the weeing...(Possibly to do with Aldorsterone or DI)

Bad fatigue during the day

Night time anxiety - insomnia, waking up to wee all the time

Excersise intolerance

Dr hair

Dry skin

Muscle tne very poor

change in fat distribution in my body

What I wanted to ask was is any one a celiac and hypothyroid? If so, does teh celiac diet cure the thyroid? is teh thyroid just a spin off from celiac???

I am having allmy hormones tested next week and I want to make sure I am doing things right. If I am on celiac diet will my thyroid or hormone problem show if Iam doing the celiac diet??

I know if iam doing the diet Ihave thyroid symptoms or hormone symptoms...I think this is why I dont ever feel better. They have said possibly hypopituitry..so I just dont knwo what to think anymore..

But if this rash is DH - Iamgoing tuesday to docs and Iam going to insist have it biopsied to confirm if Ihave DH!!!

Thanks guys..I am just confused as wheni saw neurologist the first time I had no reflexes and I was off the diet, but next time I did and I was on the diet!!!so, maybe the diet effects me neurologically..

Sorry hope your all okay missed you loads..Ive been on hormone sites trying to work out what else is happening, also Iam helping people on a thyroid site at teh moment with Diet and excersise as I was a trainer before all this. It helps keep my mind focused on something else....so been quite busy inbetween being ill..

Welcome back!

Yes, Thyroid can be related to Celiac. The diet helps some, but not everyone with their thyroid.

You need:


Free T3

Free T4

And all of the thyroid antibodies

You should also have them check your adrenal gland function

Hope you feel better soon.

GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)
