Hashimoto’s disease is a rare condition in which the immune system affects the thyroid which is a small gland at the base of the neck below the Adam’s apple. Thyroid gland belongs to the endocrine system and produces hormones that co-ordinate many of the body activities.
This results in the inflammation of thyroid gland from Hashimotos disease which is also known as chronic lymphoctic thyrioditis which makes thyroid gland underactive and work less efficiently which is named as hypothyroidism. Hashimoto’s disease is widely spread and most common disease cause of hypothyroidism in the United States. It majorly affects middle ages women but it also occurs in men and women of any age and in children too.
Gluten is a composite food which is found in food material processed from wheat and similar grains. Worldwide, it is the source of pure protein and is used as an additive in food which is low in protein.
Doctors around the world have researched and found a strong connection between gluten and Hashimoto’s disease. Gluten has similar properties to thyroid glands thus it harms it adversely and is worse if the person is already gluten intolerant. Gluten also weakens the intestinal walls and facilitates leaky gut which is a common problem for Hashimoto’s patients. Gluten then passes into the blood stream and it triggers body’s auto immunity function. Once it reaches the blood stream, your body’s auto immunity system attacks it as well as the thyroid system often resulting in hypothyroidism. And moreover, even if you do not have Hashimoto’s disease, your body will greatly benefit by kicking gluten out of your diet.
Gluten should be treated as a poison. If you have Hashimoto’s then you should stop gluten right now. Once gluten is introduced in the body, it takes six months for the effects to go away. So taking gluten once makes you feel the ill effects for such a long time and even prove lethal in few cases.
Gluten adversely affects the brain’s health as it hampers the thyroid directly and the hormonal development ceases or slows down to a really low level. This affects the brain in the long run and brain growth diminishes which is irreversible and not curable.
