heartburn connected with gluten sensitivity?
I am a 50 year-old female, and have been treated for low thyroid for about 8 years, specifically Hashimoto's for 1 1/2 years. Lately I have been getting heartburn daily. My doctor had me take omeprazole for three months, but heartburn returned within 3 days after discontinuing, even though the medication should relieve symptoms for months. My whole family has diversticulosis, and there are other various autoimmune disorders. My sister definitely has gluten intolerance. Could this heartburn be a symptom of gluten intolerance? I've never heard it mentioned before.
