I have some similar issues- gluten intolerance, symptoms of low thyroid (normal tests, including the ones I paid for privately since the NHS wouldn't do them), possible adrenal problems and so on. I've been reading Mastering Leptin which says that thyroid can be downregulated if there is a leptin issue as the body thinks it is starving even though it isn't. So low thyroid but without an actual thyroid issue. As far as I understand it, inflammation is at the root of it (my symptoms flared when other gluten intolerance symptoms flared, and I doubled my bodyweight in 3 years at that same time, so it makes sense). I haven't got that far with what to do about it yet though, the science just isn't there really. Minimising inflammation by removing inflammatory triggers and using anti-inflammatory things like fish oil, can only be a good thing.

Thyroid problems, digestive issues and acne: low carb or moderate carb diet best?
