Could my hyperthyroidism have caused my celiac disease?

Dr. Robert Kwok

Probably not: Thyroid disease and celiac disease are both disorders of the immune system, so they may be related in some way. However, one disease probably does not cause the other.

See your doctor: The most common cause would be that you are getting too much medication. Rarely, a patient with hypothyroidism will convert to graves' disease or autoimmune hyperthyroidism. This will require medication radioactive iodine treatment or surgery.

Agreed on over medication. It is very rare that this would happen naturally.

A 40-year-old member asked:

I was hypothyroid but now am hyperthyroid - should I discontinue my meds so I don't get more hyper?

No: This may be due to taking too much thyroid hormone, but stopping the thyroid pill would likely lead to too little thyroid hormone. Most often, in this situation, a dose adjustment is needed. This means working closely with the doctor who prescribed the thyroid hormone for you to find the "just right" dose for you..
