hypothyroid and bloating

Hi, I have been battling hypothyroidism for about 10 years. I do not have a thyroid and I am now on T3/T4 meds. My TSH is 54, Ft3 is 2.69 and FT4 is .5. The Dr. up my meds to 100 mcg of T4 and 15 mcg of T3. Plus a host of vitamins and supplements. What I am experiencing is stomach bloating. I just don't know what to eat anymore to keep from having this. Also, I don't sleep very well. My Restless Legs drive me nuts. They can keep me up for 2 or three hours at night. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on what type of diet to follow?

Re: hypothyroid and bloating

When did you start experiencing these symptoms? Was it after you started the supplements or before.

Re: hypothyroid and bloating

Try a gluten free diet for a couple of weeks, sometimes Hashi's patients have a higher incidence for celiac too. The bloating is a symptom. If you feel better get tested for celiac or gluten intolerance.

Re: hypothyroid and bloating

Thanks for the info. I have had trouble with food all my life. I'm lactose intolerant, have corn and rice allergies. I was tested 20 years ago for wheat allergies and that came up negative. My daughter read about gluten intolerance and suggested I try that, too. Thank you.
