18update7Okay, I need to make this clear… this post is going to be only about how I feel my gluten free diet is benefiting the technical side of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. In my next post, I will do a more “feelings” oriented assessment (I am speaking about how my body is “feeling”, but I guess I can include also how my “emotions” are doing too!). LOL

Before I started my current TRUE Gluten Free Diet, my antibody count (TPO) was ranging (over 10 years) between 3,000 to over 7,000. I got my test back a couple weeks ago after being gluten free for about 6 weeks. I will be much more detailed in my next post, even on this, but this is just a quick update. The antibody test came back at 172! Yes, you are reading right….172! Now how’s that for progress! I haven’t done anything new besides a serious diet change and this is something to get excited about. My TSH has also gone from 12 (range) to 7 (range) without a change in medication. So I would say I’m on the right track, wouldn’t you? See you soon with a full update! Mo
