  1. Hi, new here looking for direction or support I guess. In college (2000) I had many stomach issues and once had a stomach scope that showed inflammation, but nothing was Dx. A doctor suggested I go gluten free and I tried but did not feel better, however this was before the internet was huge and she didn't really explain what that meant to be gluten-free so looking back I know I really wasn't gluten-free. My stomach issues have improved significantly most likely due to eating better overall and not drinking to excess like I did in my early 20s, living the college life . I was then Dx with endometriosis in 2006. It has been in remission since I got pregnant with my first child in 2008, followed by my second in 2011. I was just DX with Hashimoto's (sky high antibody and TSH levels, low Free T3 and T4) and have started thyroid replacement. I was also tested for Celiac's - Gliandin AB IgA and IGG as well as Recticulin IGA AB - all negative. Family history includes mother with Hashimoto's, Fibro, and CFS. I have read some studies about a link between Hashimoto's and Celiac's which was why I requested the testing. I have also read about a link between endometriosis and wheat. Do you think I could still benefit from a gluten-free diet? I don't feel awful, but I also tend to not notice how bad I feel until I feel better if that makes sense. Thank you.
