Explanation : So far no reliable scientific facts to connect Hashimoto thyroiditis with gluten - gluten intolerance or sensitivity. Something that may be confusing you that both condition have autoimmune component in their development. But NO relations between them.

Ignore this stuff: Real gluten sensitivity is fairly common but the militants who claim it is the basis for many other common health problems have not convinced the scientific.community.
