I have some vitamin/hormone/thyroid issues. After the holiday’s I decided that it was time to take better care of myself. Not necessarily for me, but for my husband and kids. So I have been going to the doctors, and a psychiatrist and trying to get more active, take my medicines and vitamins.
Last appointment my Psychiatrist suggested that I try a gluten free diet. He is happy that I am starting to feel much better and he thinks that going gluten free may help me feel even better. I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Disease but my thyroid is still functioning fine so I am not on any medication for it, I just have to go back yearly to check my hormone levels.
He said since it’s auto immune maybe we can play around with my diet. He suggested I try Gluten Free for at least a month to see if I might feel better overall. But it’s all or nothing. I can’t like sort of be gluten free. He asked if there was anything that would be really hard for me to replace and I said Pizza. Pizza is my favorite thing. He laughed and agreed that there really is no amazing substitute for pizza.
So I am going to try it. I started yesterday. I did find a place that makes gluten free pizza and there is a grocery store that has a pretty good cauliflower crust pizza… It’s going to be hard but I am going to try this for at least a month.
Has anyone else gone gluten free? What’s your experience with it?
