Is there any scientific evidence backing claims that gluten free/paleo will help with my Hashimoto's, or keep me from getting other AI diseases?

Is there any scientific evidence backing claims that gluten free/paleo will help with my Hashimoto's, or keep me from getting other AI diseases?

Not at all: Gluten intolerance and Hashimoto's are both considered autoimmune disorders but they are not related in any manner otherwise. However having one autoimmune disease is a risk factor for another autoimmune disease to develop. Don't torture yourself with a gluten-free diet without confirmation. Be sure that your vit D3 level is optimal even though its immune regulating role remains to be proven. ...Read more

Does going gluten free help with Hashimoto's thyroiditis? Or can you recommend anything that will help? Medication isn't helping with symptoms at all.

Might be harder: I don't see how the gluten free diet will help, but if you're thyroid levels are normal (blood tests can determine this) and your pcos is being adequately managed, your chances are higher. One of the hallmarks of pcos is anovulation or irregular menses, so getting this regular will improve your chances. This can be done with weight loss (very important) or medicines. ...Read more
