Gluten & Hashimoto’s
Studies link Hashimoto’s with gluten
Numerous studies from several countries show a strong link between gluten intolerance and Hashimoto’s disease, and many people’s thyroid symptoms worsen when they ingest gluten. It’s believed this may be because the molecular structure of gluten closely resembles that of thyroid tissue. When the immune system targets gluten for destruction and removal, it inadvertently attacks thyroid tissue as well.
Gluten intolerance is a common problem today
Some researchers estimate gluten intolerance affects up to one third of the population, many of who do not have digestive complaints. Other common symptoms of gluten intolerance include:
- Joint inflammation
- Skin rashes (eczema, psoriasis, rosacea)
- Respiratory congestion
- Neurological issues–brain fog, fatigue, migraines, or memory loss
