I just, with the help of doctors, figured out that I am gluten intolerant. Is anyone else out there going through the same thing? I also have a thyroid disorder. I would love to connect with someone who understands.

I live gluten free. I had to figure it out myself... how can I help? I love it. only gets difficult when i want the bad choices anyway. I eat Ezekiel bread for the occassional carb craving, but for th emost part I am going on a year probably or slightly more. I still desperately regret my falls off the wagon, but feel better now. be aware, it is often associated (no direct reason or correlation) with thyroid disorders... oh... just read that in your post. hahhaaa... yes i have that too.

I am also gluten intolerant. Also figured it out myself long time ago before you could find all the answers on internet. There is a group for gluten free dieters on FS but they are not very active. I do not have celiac desease, so i do not really try to be completely gluten free (there is a lot of hidden gluten in many foods - soy sauce for example). I avoid eating wheat, and other grains that contain gluten, try to cook most of my food myself. I do not try to substitute wheat in familiar dishes, i just eat food that does not contain it. I do not feel deprived and feel much better when i adhere to the diet. There are also many websites and blogs on internet devoted to gluten free life, and a lot of recipes. Eating out is more of a challenge but is also doable.

What kind of thyroid disorder do you have? Hyper or hypo? Hypo is easier to treat and does your thyroid disorder have anything to do with your gluten insensitivity? If so, it just might go away as your thyroid levels become more stable. Getting used to a gluten-free diet may be hard initially. Gluten is found in almost everything we eat. If you’re taking any kind of supplements, you’ll be surprised to know that gluten is often used an excipients that binds tablets! I usually take gluten free supplements – it all depends on your level of intolerance. There are a lot of gluten free products available these days, so while it takes a little getting used to (maybe cooking more at home) but it is manageable. All the best!

My household is GF. Actually, it was the thing that made my spouse leave us because he got fed up with me fixing a meal for him and one for us. I was diagnosed with Crones disease then the thyroid went the other way.Everything balanced out when I made the diet changes. I had 3 weeks of such withdrawal cravings. I only take GF supp, and found I did even better with items that avoided being packaged with soy products. When I could clear all gluten from my kitchen, the symptoms left like I had never known before. So, I banned gluten from the kitchen and we now avoid most soy, too. We found over time we could add in some very carefully packaged organic oat meals but we avoid all wheat, barley and rye, religiously. My two sons never gained the weight like I did. It did give them a lot more stamina and energy than their peers. We even made back country back packing foods. I find that when I am faithful to the non soy bit with GF, the weight pretty much falls off. So, after a year finishing up the divorce, selling the house, getting our college sons positioned and handled etc, with a lot of restaurant meals, I gained weight and now am working to get that off.
