Thyroid Disease Or Cd

I have a friend who has been back & forth to doctors. She now knows it is either some sort of Thyroid Disease or celiac disease.

Are there some distinguishing factors or symptoms that could tell her which of these conditions she has? Doctors aren't giving her much help so she is trying to figure things by herself until she knows more for sure.

Very often they go hand-in-hand and she could have both. She needs to find a doctor that understands the concept and can give a proper diagnosis which is no easy task. You are nice to be helping your friend, she can use it, believe me. There is testing through Enterolabs that can confirm gluten intolerance for sure.

I have hypothyroidsim, but decided to be tested for gluten intolerance through Entrolab. I am gluten intolerant and so went gluten-free knowing that gluten can trigger other autoimmune reactions like hypothyrodism. I now stick to being gluten-free and take a supplament to help support my thyroid. The gluten might be causeing the thyroid problem, but the gluten-free diet may not totally correct the thyroid issues.

Hope this helps at lease a little.

I have hashimoto's thyroiditis. (auto-immune thyroid disease)

It took over 10 years to get that diagnosed. Go to a specialist. If I didn't have the thyroid uptake test, ultrasound, and a blood test that screened for at least 5 different things I wouldn't have been diagnosed.

Do not start taking any over the counter thyroid replacement hormone or seaweed. Grave's disease is also an auto-immune thyroid disorder and that can kill a person quickly untreated. ( hyper/over- active thyroid)

I still haven't been diagnosed with celiac disease, but positive reaction to the gluten free diet. My daughter is diagnosed and I'm out of money. If I had started with the entero lab it would have been a lot cheaper and less invasive for my daughter and me.
