  1. The Celiac Disease Foundation already has a database for Celiac/NCGS. It is pretty detailed and does ask questions about other auto-immune diseases, symptoms, etc. You can find more information here: https://icure.celiac.org/ .
  2. I'm not a scientist or a doctor, but I did have Celiac Genetic testing. What you posted seems to be the note explaining what your risk might be with certain haplotypes, but it doesn't appear that you posted your actual results. For instance, my genetic tests said "Celiac Risk Haplotypes Detected..." and then explanation of risk (screenshot below). If you are positive for any of the Celiac haplotypes that does not necessarily mean you have Celiac Disease. About 30-40% of the population has the DQ2 and DQ8 heterodimer. There is a good video explaining Celiac genetics from the celiac disease Foundation here: A more detailed explanation of Celiac genetics (and many other things) can be found here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK1727/ Hope this helps!
  3. I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism around age 11-12. I had adverse reactions to the meds available at the time (the 80s). Radioactive iodine was used to destroy the thyroid at that time but my doctors didn't want to use it because I was pubescent. So I had my thyroid partially removed instead when I was 14-15. Like you I've been on Synthroid for 30+ years (I'm 47). I was diagnosed with Celiac about a month ago so I'm also interested in the thyroid correlation. I didn't have significant digestive symptoms. I was diagnosed as a result of low B12 and iron. I know that Iodine is essential to thyroid function. If yours has been completely removed, iodine may be irrelevant (not sure what else iodine does). But if you have a thyroid and especially if Hypo, iodine is necessary for thyroid function.
