Gluten Intolerance and low progesterone.

by Zoe Klassen

Hi, I am a 42 year old woman who has been battling hypothyroid and low progesterone levels for 10 years now. I have been gluten free for almost a year. My question to you is: Do you think my body has healed enough by now that I can start my progesterone and thyroid treatment? Does ferritin levels have anything to do with how our bodies absorb protein.

thank you

Have you NOT been Treated all this time?

Hi Zoe,

Can you give me more information. I am somewhat confused. Have you NOT been treated for your hypothyroid and low progesterone levels because you have been waiting for your body to heal?

While it's great to get your body healing and to fix the underlying problems, it ALSO helps your digestive system to heal if you are being treated for hypothyroid and other hormone imbalances, doing only one at a time you are only forcing yourself to suffer unnecessarily!!
There is absolutely no need to wait for your digestive tract to heal before treating hypothyroid!!

Can you give me more information about your conditions?

Progesterone question
by: Meghan

I am 25 and have been having serious issues with low progesterone for about 5 years now. My doctor is treating it with natural progesterone and I am seeing results. (previously when I went to the doctor they would just write a prescription for birth control and send me home. I am married now and want to have children, but excessive menstruation..i.e daily for 9 months... is preventing that) A friend pointed out that hormone imbalance coupled with my fatigue can be a sign of a problem with gluten. Is that true? Should I have this checked, no one ever has to my knowledge.

Your questions are telling me that you've not read any of the pages on gluten on my site. Please look to the left and click on the button that says Gluten Sensitivity and start reading and don't stop until you've read at least 10 pages and most of your questions will likely be answered.

So, first of all, no there are few to no studies on gluten intolerance and 'low progesterone'. You are being too specific. Studies take money, LOTS of money and there are going to be few people studying something that specific. But there are TONS of studies about gluten and infertility in women. And you do NOT need to have fatigue or any other health issues for gluten to be your problem. JUST infertility is plenty to suspect gluten intolerance and your doctors 'should' know this, but most have no clue.

Then, should you 'get someone to check'? NO! Again, please read my pages and your question will be answered. Getting 'checked' will almost certainly leave you more confused than ever. Again, I have MANY MANY MANY pages on why I don't recommend getting 'checked' for gluten sensitivity.
