I haven't researched this person -- this site came recommended by another Hashimoto's sufferer.

 

 

Recently, my endocrinologist told me that there is a gluten/hashimoto's connection - however - not for all.

The problem is that most endocrinologist test just one thing, but there are tons of others things that need to be tested as well. Most thyroid specialist, well that go more natural, 100% say you cannot do gluten if you are Hashimoto's. To me that was all I needed to hear, gluten or food is not worth my health. They are now even finding the gluten free grains are not much better, cross reactants cause issues as well.. I will admit, I love going NO grain right now, I eat now for health (Still love the taste of what I cook) and now primarily go for nutrient density.

Imagine though endocrinologist everywhere telling people to do this, 90 plus percent would never do it to the full extent.

Most of the gluten we aet is from bread. There is a lot of people eat fast produced, white processed bread made with high levels of yeast to produce 'quick' bread.

 

it is diffucult ot follow a gluten free diet so I have been reading lots about bread. I have come to the conclusion that it is the fast made white bread we have been eating for the past 50 years that has caused most of the gluten problems. I have now started making my own sourdough bread made with part white and part rye flour, with some extra wheatbran thown in. It takes longer to rise and prove, which is much more natural and the way our grandparents used to do it. It tastes great and even my children prefere it to white bread.

 

I am a convert. I cannot comment on any health improvements as I am currently in the process of hashitoxicosis but it certainly has to better than the processes white bread I used to eat.

Celiac.org has a great list of gluten-containing foods and more.  Gliadin is also something that gluten-free people may need to watch out for.

It's nice to have the list for things gluten-free people "CAN" eat as well :)  http://celiac.org/li...t/food-options/

I love corn, but cannot have it, my allergies flare up, and I only eat organic sprouted corn tortillas. Go figure.

 

I know the problem though they are finding with the gluten free grains is there are protein molecules are similar to the thyroid and cross react. So you really have to be careful, what ends up happening is people end up eating loads of gluten free grains and possibly cause the same issue in the body. 

 

Also, gluten hides in so many places like beauty care products, if you go gluten free it's tough and you have to make sure you go all the way.
