A doctor can test for gluten insensitivity.  I tested negative so never paid much attention to it.


I went sugar free/ carb free mostly on the Southbeach diet and lost 11lbs.  At the time I was nowhere overweight.  It was awesome being 'skinny".


I've always limited dairy in my life to the point, I am now stage Osteopenia.  Good news is it's stable now that I have added calcium, magnesium and vitamin D. Graves can be hard on the bones so I have had 4 dexa scans over the years.  I try to avoid now but my doc insists - but I still push off by a few years in between.

Free T-4 and Free T-3 are absolutely necessary to properly dose yourself.
My experience is that 1/2 - 3/4 of range is your goal for optimal treatment

My Journey... 7 years to receive a diagnosis. TT 2004 after 4.5 years on Tapazole that had to be adjusted monthly - endo ran labs every 4 weeks. Remission was never going to happen for me so I opted for surgery to remove. Final DX by surgeon was Hashitoxicosis, TPO antibodies over 2000 and TSI 316% within the year prior to surgery. I never had a ultrasound or any lab testing to rule out cancer - pathology was negative. Post surgery I was kept hypo for many years - until I figured out how to dose my self, relying on where I fell in the FT-4 and FT-3 labs. I run TSH below range due to positive TBII antibodies. Horrible time adjusting to addition of Cytomel = patience pays off when adding this drug to the mix.

The happy ending ---> Stable dose since 1/10 Unithroid 125mcg, Cytomel 12.5mcg - labs I can live with.
