    Default Hashimotos, Fibromyalgia & Yeast Allergy

    Hello, everyone,

    I am new to this forum, and wanted to introduce myself , first.

    My name is Nat, I was diagnosed with Hashimo 3 years ago..

    I also have severe fibromyalgia, and my body hurts all the time from non-specific kind of pain.. Shoulders, hips, knees, and hand joints and even feet..

    On accedent, I went to urgent care due to recent heart palpitations, and was tested to allergies.. Guess what ? Yeast, or candida was #1 on my allergy list, highly allergic to it.

    That means I cannot eat bread and baked goods anymore.

    I have looked online, and there is a direct connection between yeast allergy , hypothyroidism and fibromyalgia.. So, I am trying to research more on this subject and get more support from websites, like this one..

    I would like to hear from more people like me - if you allergic to wheat or yeast, please, share with us your points and advices.

    Thank you

    Nat.

    Hi Nat,

    Great to have you and your knowledge on this site.

    Sorry to hear about all the health problems you have had.

    I have hypothyroidism and I would say my sensitivity to carbs began around that time - I think it could be a reason why I gained so much weight even after treatment - because I didn't change my diet. I have often wondered if I am allergic or intolerant to gluten. I have had a test for coeliac and it was negative. However, I know how I feel when I don't eat carbs and it suit me better. Having said that I am unclear as to what it is in the carb family that is the problem.

    I would love to have a York test blood analysis - recommended by some dieticians, but it is pricey. I don't know which country you're in but I expect there are equivalents. YorkTest | Food Intolerance, Allergy Tests, and Food Sensitivity Testing Ny sister had one and did well on restricting what they said - she lost a lot of weight, but too much in a way as way slim to start with. It helped her mood a lot, though, she said.

    Are you trying a low carb lifestyle? I think it would be worth a shot if not.

    Thanks, Alexa,
    I am trying low carb life style, but I still consume some unwanted carbs from ocasional sources ( cannot help myself with weekly candies or sugar in coffee).

    I am not big on sweets and this is NOT my main problem. I think, my main problem is carbs in meals , such as bread, pastas, and flour - related meal preparation. In any case, I have completely eliminated bread and pastries from my diet - I don't eat anything with obvious and known to me wheat/yeast.

    I do not do soda, and I am not big on flavored coffee...So, I need a lot of support in order to maintain my "low carb style.." I believe that this is a life long learning process, and one need to adjust mentally prior to beginning of this diet.

    I am not a stict Atkins person, and I am afraid to admit this on this forum.
    But, I am willing to learn and work on downsizing my carbs to minimum possible for my diet.


    Keep in touch,
    Nat.
    PS. I live in North Carolina.
