Hello

I have my I 131 scheduled for the end of September. My diagnosis was confirmed when I had a total thyroid removal on Jul 15. I have celiac and am a bit concerned about the low iodine diet combined with gluten free - anyone else out there in the same boat? I am having thyrogen shots so I don't have to go off my meds so at least that is a bit of a relief

    Hi danderson, I was just recently diagnosed with celiac. I am due for a partial throidectomy next wednesday. So many questions. I hope someone can give us some answers.
