  1. I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism around age 11-12. I had adverse reactions to the meds available at the time (the 80s). Radioactive iodine was used to destroy the thyroid at that time but my doctors didn't want to use it because I was pubescent. So I had my thyroid partially removed instead when I was 14-15. Like you I've been on Synthroid for 30+ years (I'm 47). I was diagnosed with Celiac about a month ago so I'm also interested in the thyroid correlation. I didn't have significant digestive symptoms. I was diagnosed as a result of low B12 and iron. I know that Iodine is essential to thyroid function. If yours has been completely removed, iodine may be irrelevant (not sure what else iodine does). But if you have a thyroid and especially if Hypo, iodine is necessary for thyroid function.
