There isn’t just a link between celiac disease and thyroid dysfunction, there is also evidence to suggest that a gluten free diet can improve thyroid function and related symptoms in those with thyroid dysfunction, including those with autoimmune thyroid conditions. While much of the research focuses on Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, there is also some compelling research supporting the benefits of a gluten free diet for those with Graves hyperthyroidism.

The same study referenced above that looked at the link between celiac disease and thyroid disease also looked at the impact that a gluten free diet has on thyroid function. The researchers found that in certain cases, gluten withdrawal may single-handedly reverse the thyroid dysfunction.

One study studied the effect of a gluten free diet on a group of women diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. The study split the group of women into those who followed a gluten free diet and those who ate gluten. The participants who followed a gluten free diet reduced thyroid antibody levels and also increased vitamin D levels.

Another study evaluated children aged 1-12 with celiac disease and concluded that compliance with a gluten free diet can help reduce incidence of autoimmune thyroiditis and also maintain a healthy thyroid in existing celiac disease patients.

Another topic of interest with respect to thyroid dysfunction is the symptom of obesity in those (particularly women) with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. One study attempted to take the evaluation of a gluten free diet on autoimmune hypothyroid a step further and compared weight loss in a group of women with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis who followed a standard calorie reduction diet with a group of women with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis who followed a standard calorie reduction diet and a gluten free diet. After six months, body fat content was statistically significantly lower in the group of women on the gluten free diet than in the control group of only a calorie reducing diet.
