Just checked my email for the first time and saw all the responses - thank you!
To answer some of your questions...I've been GF/DF for 5 years (actually 8, but three of those years I was unintentionally poisoning myself by not reading labels properly in a non-English speaking country). I have a long history of digestive issues, did notice a difference going GF but certainly didn't resolve all my problems. After reading 'Primal Body Primal Mind' now wonder I'm cross-reactive with other grains? Part of the reason I'm trying primal.
I started Armour in April this year. Am Hypothyroid not Hashi's, sorry don't have test results to hand. Also diagnosed with adrenal fatigue at the same time - so yes, adrenals certainly could have been the issue. Just to sweeten the deal I also have messed up hormones (abnormally low levels of oestrogen). So there's no doubt in my mind this is all interconnected and the reason I'm trying to tackle a change in diet, among other things. My health has been worsening for the past two years, and I suffer from pretty constant fatigue. I actually thought I had chronic fatigue prior to my hypothyroid diagnosis.
I think I'm going to transition onto the diet a bit more slowly, even though this goes against what Nora G suggests in her book. Doing some reading yesterday it seemed that for some people this yielded better results.
Anyway, thanks again everyone for being so generous with your time. Much appreciated.
