What is the relationship between gluten intolerance and thyroid? I have been tested for sluggish thyroid but doctors don't agree and I fall in the "normal" range. Since turning 40 in 2002 and going through a divorce my hair has thinned, my skin is irritated and scarred, my weight is up 30 pounds (I walk 20 miles/week and do resistance training 3 days), I never have the urge to eliminate my bowels (only with enemas), I'm tired when I wake up, etc. What are the possibilities of gluten causing these problem? I appreciate any input or suggestions.
