Just diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis so much to learn. Curious what changes in diets most of you made. I figured out back in December I was Gluten sensitive which seems pretty common for HT. Didn't seem to have a dairy or an egg sensitivity during re entry after the Whole30. But still trying to figure out the eating part.

Looking for a group to learn with and get back to my old self. SO tired... Been on Nature throid
for almost 2 weeks and see my Naturapath and new blood work in 6 weeks. Synthetic thew me into migraines because of the gluten binder.

Anyhoo Glad to be here with others dealing with hashimoto's thyroiditis .

this forum is dead, find a better one, only three of us "vets" ever answer this place - because no one else will.

You obviously learned about diet, cant tell you anything more. Stay way from junk food, fast food, frozen meals ect.

I improved 1 of 2 hashi antibodies with above diet and paleo. Med stayed the same, so no cure.

Not everyone can cure it, so dont fall for what you read as far as curing. I have questioned many people who claim that and very few have antibody s cleared to prove this. Many dont even know what antibodies are, thus they make cluless claims.

listen to your gut. Pardon this but: less farts = better gut, no.... excess gas is NOT normal despite what conventional Drs say. they are cluless with gut health. My Dr smoked when I was a kid, what does that tell you.
Had initial lyme symptoms late 80's, then again and with bullseye early 90's. Ended ABX for Lyme in Jan 2016. Rebuilding / fine tuning / fixing muscles since then; member "10 Percenters Lyme Club". What an adventure this has been. Hashimotos adds to the enjoyment.

Doesn't appear to be too many forums.

And yes I am listening to my gut so far dairy and eggs don't appear to be an issue and yes I do eat healthy. Never have ate a whole lot of junk food quit drinking 9 months ago.

Yes this was a blindside for me always been healthy other than a major tooth issue last year Plantar Fascia that wouldn't heal.

Thanks for your reply. smile Guess we do the best we can do.

If you have Hashi’s and suspect a gluten issue, you should get tested for celiac disease as they commonly occur together. You must be consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 prior to the antibodies blood test.

Can't imagine consuming gluten as it sends me into severe bloating and abd pain. I've just started this journey and actually 3 weeks in I have my next blood test in 4 week and a re evaluation.

For many, antibodies for celiac disease can remain in your blood for a year or more. Also, it can take a while to really master the gluten free diet. Just something to consider.

Yes there are lots of factors, leaky gut, tooth infection, plantar fasciitis .... Been gluten free since December for sure feel a lot better. Time.... blood work and figure out the next step. My Endo said I was fine at 5 with my T4's... Naurapath said no and did a slew of tests TPO was 383 Thyroglobulin was 78.9 both high. Patience and healing, really a lot of changes my body has gone through as of late. Just want to get back to my hikes and cycling...
