    Very interesting story. Thanks for sharing. I wish I would have found out about my gluten problem at such a young age.

    I am 44 and was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s at the age of 25. Since then I have been on various doses of levothyroxine but since going gluten free (almost a year ago) I have had my meds cut in half. I have lost 25lbs as well. I still need to lose 20 more lbs to get to my ideal weight but I know that I will get there.

    The only time I have been sick since going gluten free was when I ingested some gluten by accident at a restaurant.

    I suffered from migraines from the time I was 10 yrs old that steadily became more frequent. They are gone. I suffered from arthritic symptoms for about three years but when x-rayed I was told I had the bones of a 19 yr old, blood tests showed no indication of arthritis. I still had all kinds of pain and swelling in my joints, my feet swelled all the time and it could become difficult to walk. This is all gone. I can now walk all day with very little fatigue.

    I suffered mental recall problems that were pretty severe but was told that it was just aging. This gets better every day. I also suffered from depression and though I sometimes have the blues, the depression has not returned.

    My GERD is pretty much completely gone unless I seriously over indulge in spices. I also have more energy than I have had since I was a teen.
    I still do rice but no corn, wheat, rye or barley.

    I don’t consider being on a gluten free diet to be some sort of sentence. Just the opposite. I consider it to be freeing. I become healthier every day and all I had to do was change my diet. Much better than taking meds which simply mask problems as they steadily get worse.
