One of the primary causes of a hypothyroid condition is an autoimmune disease called Hashimotos. Gluten intolerance is a key factor in this. As it turns out, the molecular structure of gluten is virtually identical to thyroid tissue. When your immune system reacts to gluten in your system as a foreign invader, it also attacks your thyroid as well. This may be why you feel much better when you avoid gluten.
