Turns out coffee is an appetite suppressant. I also find that too much was giving me weird BP spikes and migraines, so I'm also cutting back with the aim of cutting out entirely.

Update: It also helped a lot to stop drinking coffee every morning. I don't know why, it just helped regulate my digestive tract.

Although I feel fine off my Synthroid, I do sometimes wonder if the fact that my body is still making TSH can have its own adverse effects. The hypothalamus tells the pituitary to make the TSH, and the pituitary does that, so that's two glands making two hormones theoretically to excess..... is that bad? Are there negative consequences to that?

Asked my doctor about blood testing for gluten intolerance. She ordered up a celiac screen. *sigh* At least I don't (officially) suffer from celiac. Tongue

I'd been completely off my synthroid for a couple of months and feeling not-bad, but feeling more and more tired recently and hair thinning despite supplements (which seemed to have been making a HUGE difference in my hair and nails! Smiley) so started back up on a low dose. Weight is starting to come off again and feeling less tired, so perhaps I've found a compromise dosage.

That said, I'm still working on losing the gluten entirely for at least a month to see what differences I notice.

I am really thinking that gluten free is not all there is to getting well. Smiley Actually, I know I am not alone. However, when I went grain free, gluten free, sugar free, and everything "free", my antibodies soared down into the lowest zone I had every witnessed since my diagnoses. (172) Up til that point, it was common for me to see far into the thousands on a regular basis.

So, will we become anti-grain? I have other ideas on this one but I will wait for another blog post. Smiley

Just wondering what your experience with gluten free has been and has it lead to you also eliminating other foods?

HI Deb,

Thanks for the links. I really like the second one. Boy, that person really hates grains. LOL

Hi Olsolo0,

As far as I know, the test for Celiac is not the same as the gluten sensitivity tests. The way I understand it, is that Celiac normally has to be full blown (severe destruction happening to the intestines) for it to be positive. So, anything leading up to that destruction could be unrealized until it is in the most severe state. Also, the antibodies for Celiac are different than those to other parts of the body so I would think you would need to take a more comprehensive gluten sensitivity test.

Mine was done through EnteroLab http://www.enterolab.com/StaticPages/Faq.aspx

Hope this helps.

By the way, are you being alerted when you get responses to the forum? I want to be sure it is running correctly.

Thanks, Mo
