    Hi diagnosed by heel prick at birth with and underactive thyroid, then I was diagnosed 3/4 years back with coeliac disease after struggling with upset stomachs on a regular basis throughout my life enough was enough. Although it weren't picked up by my gp I had to force them to send me private.

    Currently going through a phase of been absolutely wiped out. I have no sympathy from my husband of almost 6 years. We have 2 children one 4 the other 2.

    Feeling down because I'm sick to death of my husband having a go at me when I mention I'm shattered!

    Any advice?

    Sorry to hear you feel so bad Leah. I'm guessing you're already gluten free?? The two do go hand in hand - I'm hypo but tested neg for coeliacs. Many of us are gluten free anyway to help the thyroid. How long ago was your thyroid blood tests done? Our needs change throughout our lives so it could be out of wack now

    Hi Leah, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis, borderline celiac/selective IgA Deficiency. They have been researching and have found a link between gluten and Hashimoto's. research and you will find the plastic water bottles and certain types of plastic containers and wrap are interfering with our thyroid function, also.

    I use BPA free bottles and quit gluten, soy and artificial sweeteners
