Hashimoto And Gluten And Diverticulitis
I was recently diagnosed with hashimoto's. Is there any info on needing to change diet to gluten free? Never had problems with gluten prior to dx.

There is gluten sensitivity, affecting more people, but usually milder. There is wheat allergy, less common than the others. The treatment, for now, is to avoid all gluten in ...Read more

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.
I have hashimotos and pcos how hard will it be for me to get pregnant.I am not ovulating at the moment that I know of but have just gone gluten free.?
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

Most likely.: You will probably continue to make antibodies that target your thyroid proteins for the rest of your life. If the antibodies are causing your thyroid to be underactive, this will usually persist, and will often progress to the point where your thyroid makes no thyroid hormone (so you may need higher doses of thyroid hormone over time). If there is pain or swelling, these usually do go away. ...Read more
Often to a degree: Hi. Hashimoto's goiters often regress over long periods of time and may regress completely, but often a goiter remains. I know that's not very exact or helpful, but at least you know it's fair to expect some degree of longterm goiter. If it grows rapidly or significantly or develops a nodule, it should be evaluated. Good luck! ...Read more
