Yes, sadly they go hand in hand. You've been gluten-free for long enough for thyroid inflammation to settle down, so I'd suggest going with whatever your Dr. suggests. Make sure he reads your TSH with the new 0.5-2.5 range, not the old one that says you're OK if it's a high as 4.0. The good news is that you will feel much better on a thyroid pill if you're hypothyroid.

Usually thyroid inflammation improves when you get on the right amount of thyroid hormone. I haven't seen anything about dairy causing thyroid inflammation. The big one is gluten, plus certain foods called goitrogens. Soy, millet, and uncooked cruciferous veggies (brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, etc.) can cause a little thyroid inflammation. Here's more info.
