Yes, in some people there's a link between celiac and auto immune hypothyroidism.

Some do great going gluten free, others Like Tee, don't see an improvement in symptoms.

That's why it's important to try different things out, to see if they are a good fit for your particular body.

I've been gluten free since 2007.
I can't eat beans, they give me terrible leg/foot cramps at night. Corn to a lesser extent.

I would love to go vegetarian, but being unable to eat beans, precludes me from doing so. I'm one of those people who need quite a bit of protein to feel well.

We all have to figure out what's best for our unique circumstances. Just like snowflakes, we're all a little different.

Have a fun Monday!

Interesting. I know two people whose doctor put them on gluten free diet and it has not worked. Gluten free and veggie did not work for me either. I gained weight on gluten free and felt too tired to get out of bed on both diets. My gut was not better either.

Just another article I found that people might find interesting:

A reader, 66, writes that she has been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and celiac disease and for two years has followed a gluten-free, vegan, whole-foods diet.

She asks: “Can my diet possibly cure either of my conditions?”

The short answer: No, but the diet might help.

“Celiac disease and hypothyroidism don’t have a cure because they’re … autoimmune diseases, and autoimmune disease is when your body attacks healthy cells by mistake,” says Sheela Kunishige, a registered dietitian and clinical nutrition manager at Centennial Hills Hospital.

But while both celiac disease and hypothyroidism are “not curable,” she adds, “they are manageable.”

EDIT: I meant to put this in the articles up for discussion area. I don't know how I ended up here. Sorry!
