The Gluten-Autoimmune Thyroid Connection

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Sun, May 01, 2011

Did you ever rush up to someone you caught a glimpse of and then when you tapped them on the shoulder, you realized it was not who you thought it was?  it's a simple case of mistaken identity.  They had enough attributes of someone you know, to trick your brain into believing it was really them.  Well that is basically how it goes in your body when molecular mimicry occurs and an autoimmune process develops.  In this article I would like to demystify why having gluten sensitivy often leads to autoimmune thyroid - which is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in North America.

Gluten Avoidance Not Enough To Stop Autoimmune Attack

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Sun, Mar 20, 2011

A common misconception among the gluten sensitivity and celiac population (which is estimated to be 1 in 100 to 1 in 166 people in the United States) is you can stop the autoimmune destructive process JUST by avoiding gluten.  Unfortunately this is just not true. [1], [2] 

There is disagreement globally about just how much gluten in food [as cross-contamination or as an additive (remember deamidated gliadin from my last article)] that will promote the continued damage to intestinal mucosa.  Some researchers promote 200mg and others as few as 20mg.  The "gluten threshold" topic is currently under evaluation by the Codex Alimentarius, the WHO/FAO commission that is in charge of setting food standards at the international level.[3]
