By eliminating gluten from my diet will that help me lose weight? I have hypothyroidism don't want medicine for the rest of my life if I can help it.

If you have. Hypothyroidism, you will need brand name T4 replacement the rest of your life, you can't help that, your body needs it. Elimination of gluten from your diet may help your intestinal tract if you're sensitive to gluten, but won't help w/weight loss. Only diet, exercise, calorie restriction will do that. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet.
