Mike,

Gluten sensitivity is a major cause of autoimmune thyroid disease as well as many other autoimmune diseases.  The following article may be helpful for you to read:

Traditional lab tests for gluten sensitivity are terribly flawed:

I would encourage you to get genetically tested for gluten sensitivity if you need confirmation.

In good health,
