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

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

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
