Hyperthyroidism, Celiac Disease and the Gluten Connection
A medical condition that should be investigated in the presence of hyperthyroidism is celiac disease. An increased prevalence of celiac disease is found in people with hyperthyroidism and if celiac disease is the cause, a gluten-free diet can be used to successfully treat and resolve the problem.
Hyperthyroidism is a common condition worldwide. It occurs in 1-2 per cent of the population with greater incidence in iodine-deficient regions and is 10 times more common in women than men between the ages of 20 and 40 years.
