WOW... I really didn't realize how all these work together. I've had a low body temperature for as long as I can remember, but I wasn't diagnosed with hypothyroidism until I was getting hypoglycemic to the point of passing out because of it. Now I'm learning that low body temperature is a symptom of hypothyroidism which can be a symptom of CD, and my hypoglycemia could be related to either or both!!!! GAH!!!

My doctor of nutrition gets very upset when she sees a good exercising athlete that describes their muscle pain and diet and then asks how to improve. Her answer is always some, ‘only a few athletes get enough anti-oxidants. Most people and especially an athlete in training never get enough. The muscles have acids in the ‘well used’ fibers’.
It takes a lot of spinach for POPEYE to save Olive Oil! Dotlady’s green shakes are a step in the right direction.

My first is 1) hypothyroidism at preteen, same meds for 35 years on a changing aging person did not get the ‘same’ results. Insulin-resistance challenged every diet but never diabetes would keep me hungry never full. My T4 to T3 conversion was long overlooked as is accepted in some medical practices the only test taken routinely was the T4. 2) Wilson’s Syndrome/Though I complained, I was silenced with anti-depressants for over a decade (side effect of this is obesity); all the symptoms were explained away as common aging or incompatibility to a drug. ‘Time for a switch to some other drug’. Let’s try something else. Take a pill and call me in the morning was a common dialog to complicate Multisomnia (many patterns of unhealthy sleep in combinations of two or more). These groupings of patterns often have severe underlying medical and emotional causes.)

Than 3) Chronic Fatigue set in after a full year on antibiotics for a chronic middle ear infection (food allergy symptom much overlooked)and post viral stress disorder cycling with extremely high female hormone imbalance while working. Then 4) clinical adrenal fatigue about mid-life but diagnosed long after symptoms were well entrenched. Then the icky toxin loading bed ridden with aches 5) Fibromyalgia three years after when corporate America fired me with a doctor’s note on file in the employer’s office and long term and short tem medical benefits deliberately ignored. This stacked with decades of starvation and moderation dieting, ‘a yo-yo is still a yo-yo’.

This has been a pattern of getting the extra weight off since I can remember(old enough to have front bumpers) but still had malnutrition signs and 60-hour workweeks of stress, usually one full time job plus one school or full time plus seasonal p/t jobs. (Single-parent-ism). I was a coffee lover 24-7, to crutch a good diet or bad diet.

Dorothy, I wonder how your diet changes have helped your lupus ... can you share how you feel?

Trish, not sure about "hives" but ... could it be Dermatitis Herpetiformis? Wasn't sure if you've checked into that. www.csaceliacs.org/dh_symptoms.php Or maybe it's related to the Samter's Triad? Are you trying Feingold diet? Omega-3s?

Does anyone know someone w/scleroderma who is doing a gf diet as part of their therapy?

I don't THINK I have any more autoimmune diseases...but I didn't think I had Celiac either until I got tested for it...I had ongoing problems with what I thought was hypoglygcemia (getting weak and shaky after eating certain things, or going without eating too long) but it seems a lot of that is related to gluten in my system. The symptoms went away for the 2 weeks I was gluten free, then I had some accidental gluten and it came back. It seems to take me quite a while to recover once I have been "glutened" too and these symptoms are one thing I notice a lot. I too feel energized when I am well hydrated, and it is not easy for me to stay that way! I am on diuretics for high blood pressure which makes it difficult.

That was a silly somewhat annoying song, but I can see where that would work.

Along with CD my blood sugar is a little high so its just barely pre-diabetes and my thyroid is low-normal. I have other things wrong due to CD but those are the auto-immune ones.

(comical way to remember which test for which autoimmune disease)

I watched this silly song and wondered how many of these we have, and how the symptoms are helped with gf diet. Do you agree gf diet is anti-inflammatory and helps? What else do you do as part of an anti-inflammatory regime?

I have Hashimotos thyroiditis and celiac, and I notice that I feel very energized when I juice green foods and stay hydrated. I'm working on my consistency. :)
