  1. :lol: It has only been 3 months for me but my last meal, unknowingly, was a hurrah. Pizza from a decent place in Milwaukee, organic brownies that were delicious, and Guiness beer. I affectionately call it the "trifecta." :lol:

    The next morning I woke up feeling run down and awful and remembered my cousin telling me about gluten and to watch how I felt after I had pizza the next time (My favorite meal). So I went off gluten the next day for a month to see what improved.

    Turns out that dang near everything did. :blink:

    I'm not going to lie, I miss my Guiness but not at the expense of my thyroid, joints, muscles, brain etc...

    But at least the last thing I had was a Guiness...totally worthy of a last gluten "meal."

    Green's Dark Ale is pretty good too though. ;) Best of all, it's not killing me. :ph34r: (Can't wait til they bring their stout stateside!


  2. I have hypothyroid and went gluten free 2 1/2 months ago. A year ago I started eating healthy (If I can't spell it or say it it doesn't go into my body, and no refined sugar) but did not cut gluten out. I felt fantastic and 4 months ago went in for my annual thyroid bloodwork. They lowered it from .150 to .125 mg.

    3 1/2 months later I could tell my thyroid was off, I was tired and wanted to eat all the time but couldn't stop thinking or talking. Went in and my meds got lowered again to .100 mg.

    One month later and the symptoms are starting again, heart and head are racing etc. I have hope that I'll be able to heal my poor thyroid now that I've finally figured out that I've been poisoning myself my whole life. :)

    I tell you this because it could be that you need your meds lowered rather than raised. ;) This is a good thing! Good Luck and do let us know!
