Enero: mes de concientización sobre el Hipotiroidismo y yo recuperándome de una recaída de gluten.

Captura de pantalla 2016-01-06 19.54.51

Además de Lupus, tengo Hipotiroidismo Autoinmune, una condición en la que mi sistema inmunológico ataca mi tiroides haciéndola más lenta. El Hipotiroidismo es horrible, e incluso puede confundirse con otras enfermedades.

Síntomas comunes del hipotiroidismo.

  1. Temperatura basal baja: tienes frío todo el tiempo.
  2. Caída de cabello
  3. Resequedad en la piel
  4. Depresión y/o ansiedad
  5. Ganar peso
  6. Pérdida de memoria
  7. Dolor articular y muscular
  8. Pies y manos fríos
  9. Dolor en las muñecas
  10. En mujeres: periodos irregulares, infertilidad, otros síntomas reproductivos.

¿Cómo descubrí que tenía hipotiroidismo?

Descubrí que tenía hipotiroidismo porque comencé a tener síntomas que yo pensé serían un periodo de activación del Lupus. Sin embargo, mi reumatólogo me revisó sin encontrar el Lupus activo. Mi nutrióloga por su parte me mandó a hacer los estudios correspondientes y descubrimos el hipotiroidismo. A unos meses del tratamiento acabaron los síntomas -además de que vi en otros aspectos de mi salud y mi cuerpo mejora. Aún continúo con el tratamiento.

Mi reumatólogo me confirmó que el hipotiroidismo es una enfermedad “hermana” del Lupus, que se presentan frecuentemente juntas.

Por qué dejé de comer lácteos y gluten debido al Hipotiroidismo.

Dejé de comer gluten y lácteos hace uno año a sugerencia de mi nutrióloga quien ha visto que las personas con enfermedades autoinmunes, mejoran inmediatamente al quitarles los lácteos y gluten. Ese fue mi caso, durante meses comí cero lácteos y gluten y fue mi mejora fue evidente. Bajé 14 kilos y mi tiroides, perfecta!…

Sin embargo estas fiestas navideñas debo ser honesta, caí ante la tentación del gluten. Comí pan en todas mis comidas sin exagerar en las cantidades. Subí 3 kg, mi sistema digestivo entró en un fuerte colapso -dolor, inflamación- y mi tiroides se alentó.

Lo peor del caso es que me está costando demasiado dejarlo nuevamente. Estoy pagando caro abrir la puerta. Me siento pésimo y no me queda mi ropa.

Aprovechando que estamos en Enero, el mes de concientización sobre el hipotiroidismo, como motivación, me metí a la pagina de la Hypothiroid Mom, una de mis blogueras favoritas que escribe sobre el Hipotiroidismo y que además es una gran investigadora y activista en el tema.

Les comparto -y porque esto es terapéutico para mí- las razones por las cuales debo dejar nuevamente el gluten. El artículo original, el cual traigo a colación es este: http://hypothyroidmom.com/the-connection-between-gluten-and-thyroid-disease/

La conexión entre el gluten y la enfermedad de la tiroides.

En palabras de Shirley Plant de Delicious Alternatives: “El problema con el gluten y las enfermedades de la tiroides parece ser que la estructura de la gladina, la proteína encontrada en el gluten, la cual se asemeja a la glándula tiroidea. Muchas personas con condiciones autoinmunes también sufren de intestino con fuga o intestino que gotea- leaky gut en inglés. Esto es cuando pequeños hoyuelos se alinean en el intestino y cuando la comida es ingerida -gluten en este caso- permite que pequeñas partículas se escapen al torrente sanguíneo. El sistema inmunológico ve a estas partículas como entidades extrañas y crea anticuerpos y monta un ataque no solo a la proteína extraña -gluten- sino también al tejido de la tiroides, por su gran semejanza con el gluten”.

El artículo concluye: “Es importante saber que para sanarse, es necesario remover todo el gluten de la dieta. No hay punto medio aquí. La única manera de prevenir la destrucción inmune a tu tiroides es siguiendo una dieta de gluten cero o una dieta 100% libre de gluten”.

Otras personas con enfermedades auto inmunes que se benefician de una dieta libre de gluten son las que sufren por ejemplo de eczema o de lupus.

Comprar productos sin gluten procesados no ayuda muchas veces, ya que contienen mucha azúcar o grasas, las cuales no queremos elevar si tenemos una enfermedad auto inmune, ya que las reservas de peso extra y grasa en el cuerpo producen irritación al sistema inmunológico y su activación.

En fin, no me queda de otra que volver a luchar contra esa adicción que se activa inmediatamente en cuanto se vuelve a consumir gluten. El pan es delicioso sin duda, pero no es para mi.

No desesperemos!!

Les comparto algunas de las recetas que he elaborado libres de gluten, a las cuales a partir de hoy mismo volveré. https://healthandtonic.com/gluten-free/

Many who decide to remove gluten from their diet turn to the array of gluten-free pre-packaged foods that line our grocery store aisles. This unfortunately is not the answer as many of these pre-packaged foods are made with refined gluten-free flours, starches and sugar. This provides its own catastrophic events in the body in that we now know that sugar is the #1 food that causes heart disease, diabetes and autoimmunity. Sounds like a vicious circle doesn’t it?

Well don’t despair, I have the solution! Return to real food, yes foods that don’t come in a package or have a list of ingredients. You know the foods that our grandparents ate and the ones Mother Nature intended us to eat.

Returning to wholesome cooking is what are bodies are craving and will help you to heal and stay healthy at any age.

Here are some of my favorite gluten-free recipes.

Portobello Sloppy Joes

    I was diagnosed as a sufferer of coeliac disease at the age of three and went on to follow a gluten free diet until the age of 40. I was then told I was not coeliac. However soon after this new diagnosis I started having problems with my thyroid & have had problems ever since. I have been on Levothyroxetine now for approximately eight years & am still struggling with many overwhelming symptoms of having hypothyroidism. My doc did a thyroid antibbdy test & said I was not coeliac a couple of months ago. I have taken matters into my own hands & am going gluten free. Already I feel my symptoms are slightly less exaggerated so I shall eliminate gluten completely & hopefully this will help because I am so tired of being so poorly.

    • I was feeling the same way. It took me a couple of yrs to completely get off gluten. its been 4 months with no wheat period. It takes about 4-6 months for it to get out of your system. Know I’m taking Aloe from the plant. a half inch and I fillet it. put it in orange juice,piece of pineapple,banana and frozen raspberries. Its yummy and you can’t taste the aloe. I had a test done and it came out negative. Im treating myself that I’m gluten intolerant. Im feeling better and Im not getting pain attacks in the nerves and bones.. To replace the flour I use organic almonds and organic oatmeal and oatmeal is gluten free that means its not cross
      cotaminated.Put it in the food processor until its blended.

    • Levothyroxine doesn’t really work, see if you can find a natural or functional doctor and get on natural desicated thyroid. They can’t really tell if you have celiacs that easily for sure and if it’s a serious intolerance it could become less severe, either way that sounds like a bad doctor. There are gluten free oats like Bob’s Red Mill but organic does not mean gluten free Cecie. They are usually still processed with organic wheat products.

      • thank you…i dont have healthcare..but i went anyway ..labs come back next week.i muat say tho careful on advisi g not take thyroid med..my husband had a throid storm he almostt saw Heaven :(

      • The oatmeal meal that I buy is not cross – contaminated with wheat and its organic. This oatmeal does not bother me. GF Harvest Organic OldFashioned Rolled Oats. I order the oatmeal through Amazon. Jilli maybe your right. Maybe you can look into this oatmeal and let me know what you think. Thanks :)

    • I get sick with gluten plus gluten free I stopped eating this total garbage plus any of these types of foods are loaded with ‘histamines’ fresh natural foods best plus some products carry dairy one does not have to be lactose imtolerance I do not touch diary either no sugar as well not even cane sugar or fraudulent honey…I won’t even eat 100% honey either plus peanut butter only 100% organic other types make me worse plus Peanuts by themselves I eat tons of cashews…I avoid tuna can spinach cabbage onions tomatos tomato sauce all high histamine type foods rule of thum’ elimination plus if food makes you worse don’t eat it at all…I do not eat any cereals one I can tolerate is gluten free oatmeal but off now…

    I dntvreally know much about thyroid but I’ve had it I guess 15 years idkno. Yeah that’s my most problem.isn’t kno !!.As the years are passing me by the more I’m forgetting.Sons are constantly saying I need help I need checked what’s wrong with u.? Can u help. Ty

  4. Hi. This is great, I’m anxious to try these recipes. My husband had celiac and I have hashimotos, newly diagnosed. My question is what are staples that I should always have on hand to eat this way so that I’m not always running to the store to cook a decent gf meal for my family? I have 2 kids under 2 and simplicity is key.

  5. Is it possible to get a list of good foods to keep on hand, and some breakfast lunch and dinner recipes that will be easy to make for those of us who are just starting to learn how to go gluten free?

  6. I have hashimotos..crave sugar..so fatigued..now blood in urine but no infection in it..and diabetes.cortisol.large gut and noone cares.also on estrogen cuz nenapause..at age 49 . hysterectomy..too.take synthroid..have had strept…bronchitis..and cough the cough for six monthes

    • Vicki Osmond says:

      Go to the doctor now. Blood in your urine, and a history of diabetes and a strep infection, you need your kidneys checked now. Good luck

    • You need a new doctor if you are on synthroid with those issues. Also should be completely gluten and sugar free. That will help cravings go away and diabetes. I’ve found only natural doctors to be helpful.

      • i guess gluten free seems impossible..ive increased insulin and weaning sloky out sugar..any good diets out there?

        • Linda Lafferty says:

          Try Dr Bernstein’s Diabetic Solutions, I am Type1 for 41 yrs also hypothyroid with no Dr that wants to help I need T3, Like cytomel as I pd for my own testing and from free t3 and freeT4 and other labs done, I need t3 meds.As far as controlling blood sugars, low carb is the only way to fly. Gluten free also, with both of these in check the rest of my body is fine,thyroid will be dealt with this week! That is my problem but good luck getting an Endo or GP to believe you!

Have to heard from anyone that got the sleeve with hasimoto’s and continued to loss tonnage???

    • I have been told it would not help and I know someone who had a gastric bypass not work because of hashimotos. What you eat is more important than quantity. Find a functional or natural doctor to get correct treatment and dietary advice.

    OOOPS CLICKED SUMMIT BEFORE, I DID MY SPELL CHECK.. I MEAN….
    I AM NOW, 342 ….

  9. Ok I have tried to get onto your Summit 4 times. I have registered and never gotten a link to actually get into to watch anything. Every time I try to register again it just tells me I am already registered then nothing. Disappointing. Stopped referring anyone to this summit. Poor technical execution. Too bad

    High histamine type foods are worse than gluten tomato soup above is a disaster so are any types of fruits which majority of patients are fructose intolerant…Even vegetables like Spinach are another disaster very very high in histamines people with so called one thousand name illnesses should be tested for Ehlers Danlos Syndrome plus its complications it can come with including small or large thyroids it also come s with Syncope and/or P.O.T.S. AND OR Chiari and/or Stenosis there are 9 types it is a born aquired genetic illness a deficiency in Collagen the ‘glue’ in your body when I hear CFS Lymies Fibro M.E. pure b.s. it sets off complete alarm bells it has nothng to do with Lyme b.s. crap if Lyme was the cause of illness it would be the cause of CFS & the other one thousand stupid ‘labels’ Doctors put out now all they are ARE LABELS…Stop being labelled demand genetic tests now for Ehlers Danlos Syndrome yu will find you are Positive…Type no.4 is the Vascular type…Yes it can also come with MCAD Mast Cell Activation Disorder which is very hard to diagnosis sometimes tests will not pick it up try eating foods high in Histamines for full 24 hours prior also HIT Histamine Intolerance,Fructose Intolerance or Systemic Mastocytosis can also go together with all of this MCAD…Stop eating Monsanto sprayed foods vegs/fruit they are toxins…Thinking vegs fruits vitamins minerals are helping think again they are loaded with toxins plus histamones the less one takes the better one feels avoid b.s. crap at stores’eat to live’ ELIMINATION DIETS BEST STARTER…

  11. Aidan Walsh says:

    Wikipedia ‘Ehlers Danlos Syndrome’ it gives a great description of all complications associated with this illness the ‘most’ undiagnosed condition on this Planet asid from Chiari Malformation…Get tested Genetic tests are available stop letting your Doctors label you with b.s. LABELS such as Lyme Lymies CFS/M.E. Fibro all pure bullshot monetary making LABELS threaten Lawsuits if not taken seriously you are not PHYCOSOMATIC IMAGINERY YOU ARE SERIOUSLY SICK THERE IS NO ‘CURE’ YET THERE ARE TREATMENTS FOR SYMPTOMS…NEVER ACCEPT ‘LABELS’ IT IS 100% MALPRACTISE

  12. In other words, it is going to be more costly to hire programmers for each round comprises of 2 minutes.

    To keep you entertained for hours. I think ark

    They had been ark survival evolved reaction a hit.
    There are several tasks inside this game is more challenging, and move at a fast pace.

  13. I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours nowadays, yet I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the web shall be a lot more helpful than ever before.|
