  1. Cass, yes I have Hashimoto's, dx last June after a miscarriage. I'm on 120 mg of Armour. My OB is the one helping me on this. I had ovary pain ever since, but stopped when I reached my optimal dosis of Armour, and I know the link between Hashi's and ovaries, but this time since my cycles are normal, the spotting it's kind of odd and has been there for 1.5 months now, everything normal as per last week, ob recomended progesterone pills for 3 mo. the last 15 days of my cycle, but I will use the cream instad.
  2. Thanks cass and ravewoodglass for replying, I'm unsure of what to do next. My doctor lisents and I think he is trying to help me (he addressed my thyriod issue overlooked by other doctors) perhaps he didn't know all the test required. Anyway he's going to check my vitamin levels(d, ferretin, b and k) since I've had issues with female spotting aparentely for no reason (OK pap, no infection) and I will mention the other tests, he also referred me to a GI already. Is there perhaps a relation between bleeding and gluten intolerance??? Also I got my daughter's lab result and it was neg. I will pick them up tomorrow and see what tests they did. I will post them tomorrow
  3. Hello, I have Hashimoto's and I did not start to feel better until I was on 120 mg of Armour, my endo is basically looking only for TSH and mine last Dec was 0.08 and he told me to decrease it to 60 mg,after that I started to feel bad again, cold hands and feet, choking feeling in my throat, fatigue, etc.... after reading STTM book and the aproach to treat hashimoto's, I decided to go back to 120 mg and started to feel better again and wiil switch my endo for someone that can look beyond just the THS http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/hashimotos/ I'm too figuring out if I have Celiac, I got an incomplete celiac panel and was negative perhaps because I'm not eating enough gluten, so I will probably do the enterolab test next, also I have an appt with an enterologist next month, not sure if I will make it, since eating gluten really makes me feel yucky. My daughter was also tested and we are waiting for her results as well. I don't have PCOS but I' dealing with non stop spotting all the time, not sure if it is my Thyroid or the gluten. So I hope this helps
  4. Hello, My doctor said he would do a celiac panel, but I see he did not do some of the tests, however here are my results, TTG ANTIBODY, IGA <3 Ref range, <5 U/ml <5-8 equivocal < 8 positive IMMUNOGLOBULIN A 237 Ref range 81-463. I was in a almost gluten free diet for 2.5 months before this. I tried to eat more gluten for almost 2 weeks and it was a torture. I'm also waiting for my daughter's results, I will post them as well. Could anyone tell me what this numbers mean Thanks in advance.
  5. Well I started eating more gluten yesterday and it did not go good at all. Worst of all was discovering that my daughter who I had my suspicions of intolerance shows all the mental related behaviors (she is almost 7 yrs. old and has many delayed milestones) as the matter of fact, this year seems like she lost the ability of learning new words (I homeschool her). I'm taking her to the doctor next week for testing. Thanks for your coments
  6. One of the reasons of getting tested also is my five kids. Some do have some symptoms of gluten intolerance, and my oldest has Aspergers which many people claim going on gluten-free diet will help him. I'm not looking forward to eat gluten full time again, if test fails I'm sure I will be back for more questions Thanks for your help

  8. Hello, I was diagnose with Hashimoto's about 7 months ago, currently taking 120 mg of Armour. Two months ago I started a program for weight loss, cardio- and weight training along with a diet, which happen to be "low gluten" I immediately started to feel better, just those days that I happened to eat cream of wheat I would feel under the weather. I would like to get tested for Celiac, but I read that you have to go back to full gluten.I would like to know for how long I should eat gluten for my test to be more accurate. Thanks.
