  1. Hello, I'm new here. I have nieces and a sister with celiac and gluten intolerance; they are living gluten free. I have other relatives with gluten intolerance symptoms but who have not been diagnosed. Hypothyroidism is also common in my family. I have had blood tests that show no problems with Hashi's antibodies---I have just "plain" hyothyroidism. Has anyone here gotten at least some improvement in your hypothyroid symptoms after going gluten free? I can't take typical thyroid meds because I get side effects. I have tried all kinds of accepted medical protocols to my hypothyroidism under control. Nothing has worked. Now I'm thinking I should try to live gluten free---and that may help clear up some of the sluggishnedd of my throid/ Can anyone offer advice or insight or person experience with hypothyrodism and going gluten free? Thanks, I appreciate it!
