Check out my latest podcast interview about the connection between gluten and Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism on glutenfreeschool.com. I also touch on some new research we’re doing on foods that cross-react with thyroid tissue and are implicated in autoimmune thyroid conditions.

    Doctor Kharrazian. He leído muchas cosas sobre sus estudios del Hipotiroidismo, pero no sé inglés y quería leer su entrevista sobre la conexión del hipotiroidismo con el gluten, pero me he encontrado con un vídeo y al no saber la lengua, no puedo enterarme.
    Voy a comprar el libro “Por qué no funciona mi cerebro” que está en español, pero el otro “Por qué tengo todavía síntomas de tiroides si mis análisis son normales”, está sin traducir al español. Y a mí me pasa eso, llevo medicación y los resultados son normales, pero yo sigo teniendo todos los síntomas del Hipotiroidismo. He estado haciendo una dieta especial con una Naturista porque esos mismos síntomas lo tiene la Cándida. Pero ahora ya no sé si tengo Cándida o es resultado de mi Hipotiroidismo.
    ¿Cómo puedo saber más sobre estas enfermedades?. Agradecería su respuesta por email, si es posible.
    Un saludo desde Pamplona, España.

      Hola, que va a actualizar el libro de la tiroides y esperará a traducirlo después de eso. Lamento que todavía no está disponible en español. Sin embargo, usted encontrará muy buena información sobre la autoinmunidad en el libro cerebro. También tuvimos un lector de traducir un poco en español en su blog: http://drknews.com/newsletter-archive/kharrazian-en-espanol/

      Espero que esto ayude. Por favor, suscríbase al boletín de noticias o como su página de facebook para ser notificado cuando el libro de la tiroides está disponible en español. http://www.facebook.com/thyroidbook

    Thank you for the podcast, it makes feel (almost) sane. I have just been to the doctor, I’ve had hashimottis thyroiditus for twenty years, severe gluten intolerance that cause neurological problems getting worse and relatively minor intestinal problems, and the doctor wants to test me for ceaoliacs, noooooooooo, at least he didn’t offer me antidepressants! I would like to be tested for transglutimase 6 but I don’t know how to do it in Britain?

    Yes it is tough to know what to do to get diagnosed

    I heard asking the doctor for a full thyroid panel can help

    Dr. K,
    Thank you for this informative website. I listened to your podcast with Sean Croxton on heart disease yesterday- I have a history of heart disease in my family, my father and grandfather both died of massive heart attack under the age 60- the first and last heart attacks they had. My uncle has had extensive heart surgery, I recently found out I have hashimotos after years of suspecting I finally found a dr who did the right tests. I am also prediabetic and my cholesterol is 325, with LDL of 200. But/ I just had the CT heart scan, as you mentioned in your interview and I scored a 0! I was so thrilled- does this mean I am in the clear despite my very high cholesterol? I have just started on nature throid and my dr thinks it will help reduce my cholesterol- appreciate your feedback on weather this test means I don’t need to worry about my heart, despite family history and cholesterol.

      Carol;

      Sorry, but it’s not possible to make a statement on your situation without Dr. Kharrazian having seen you as a patient; an exam, full health history and knowledge of any and all underlying health issues would be required.

      As you undoubtedly know, being prediabetic means you need to be very mindful of keeping your blood sugars stable at all times, which will help to keep systemic inflammation to a minimum. Inflammation is one of the factors at the root of all chronic disease, including heart disease.

      Your heart scan is great news, and I hope you carry forward the positive attitude that’s reflected in your comment. That goes a long way.
