Eating gluten increases the need for thyroid hormones

A new study shows Hashimoto’s patients with symptomless celiac disease (i.e., no digestive complaints) require 49 percent more T4 to achieve the same TSH levels as non-celiac Hashimoto’s patients.

After the patients followed a gluten-free diet for 11 months their TSH levels came down with the same T4 requirement as the non-celiac Hashimoto’s patients.

Dr. Kharrazian, DHSc, DC, MS, MNeuroSci, discusses how gluten overstimulates the immune system.
