My Favorite Gluten Free Selenium Supplement – https://www.glutenfreesociety.org/shop/supplements/general-health/ultra-selenium/

Anything that interferes with your body’s ability to digest and absorb selenium will increase your risk of a deficiency. And that’s exactly what gluten does for those with gluten sensitivity. It irritates and inflames the lining of your small intestine, which is responsible for digestion and nutrient absorption. Thus, selenium deficiency is common among those with celiac disease.

An untreated case of gluten sensitivity is also a form of physical stress, which may increase your body’s demand for selenium.

In this study, concentrations of selenium were significantly lower in patients with celiac disease than those without. Even when following a gluten-free diet.

However, it’s also worth noting that a selenium deficiency could contribute to the development of gastrointestinal disorders like celiac disease. Because certain selenium-containing enzymes help protect the lining of the digestive tract from damage and inflammation. This means a selenium deficiency caused by celiac disease can further complicate things.

Thyroid disease is also strongly associated with celiac disease. This meta-analysis found that the prevalence of thyroid disease is more than 3 times higher among those with celiac disease than those without. And evidence suggests a selenium deficiency may be involved in some cases. Because it affects thyroid hormone activity and weakens your defenses against thyroid tissue damage.

So it’s not surprising that a gluten-free diet has been shown to be an effective adjunctive treatment for those with autoimmune thyroid disease, such as Hashimoto’s.
