I have Hashimoto's, and I DID have to go around my doctor to have that part tested. They draw for immunoglobulins that are the markers for the autoimmune form. I tested postive, I also have endometriosis and have been through the ringer with horomone pills and things. Now I am going to see a integrative medicine doctor who will be open to mixing of T3 and T4 to get the best result. There is a really good book call " Everything your doctor didn't tell you about hypothroid." Written by MD endocrinologist who is open minded and found the best mix for his patients on the horomones....check it out. I was having a VERY hard time losing weight and was never the person who had to worry about my weight.. until recent. I would work out TONS ( Chronic cardio) and only gained weight which was NOT muscle... I ran across the PB on chance at B and N, it has been my answer for getting the weight off!!! I am glad to hear about the autoimmune connection with gluten and casein ....never knew about that. Thanks for all the great info that is posted and websites to check out.
