Interesting reading about autoimmune issues/gluten/thyroid, etc. I have a number of autoimmune issues (celiac, Crohn's, Reynaud's) and am also hypothyroid. When I saw my endocrinologist last week she mentioned that frequently her hypothyroid patients turned out to have Celiac Disease, and then went on to say it really wasn't surprising since they're both on the same gene. I hadn't been aware of that. In any event, I definitely feel much better now that I'm gluten free and keep my carbs pretty low overall. I do love my half of an Udi's Mighty Bagel in the morning though!! Even if I had a choice, I'd never go back to a regular bagel!
