Polycistic ovarian syndrome, hypothyroid, and celiac disease sufferer. About a year after I had my daughter, (Miracle) was told I would never have children, due to my advanced poly as a teenager, I was told I had crohnes disease. Tried tested and true a surgeon of high
[More] status here told me so, so it must be true. Just like a gyno told me I'd never have children.. half right I have a child, not children :). Low and behold, I do not have crohnes disease so far.. apparently, I have something called celiac disease, which in turn can cause many of the same stomach, colon and intestinal infections that crohnes is known to cause which leads to many, many misdiagnosed crohnes patients, who could have just cut out gluten from their diet and healed up... anywho. I was also diagnosed 3 years ago with a hypothyroid. Now I'm starting to wonder if my gluten allergy went as far as messing with my thyroid? An ex smoker of 2 and a half years now, and, now that I know I have a severe allergy to all foods containing the horrible ******* of a wheat protien.. gluten free for almost 8 months. Since dropping the gluten, my thyroid meds have been over stimulating me, so now the doctor is lowering my meds. Keeping my fingers crossed that this works as I am sick and tired, of being sick and tired.
