Symptoms of Thyroiditis and Celiac

Please note that these symptoms are not exclusive and include many, many more. These are my symptoms.

Symptoms of Autoimmune Thyroiditis:
* Significant fatigue, lethargy, sluggishness
*Constipation despite adequate fiber and liquids in diet
* Brittle nails that crack or peel easily
* Frequent headaches (especially migraines)
* Unusually low sex drive
* Red face with exercise
* Mood swings, especially anxiety, panic, or phobia
* Major weight gain
* Skin problems – severe dry skin
* Swelling of feet, eyelinds or bags under eyes
* Decreased color of lips
* Low basal temperature (<97.6F)
* Loss of outer one-third of eyebrows
* Feeling off balance
* Difficulty maintaining standard weight with a sensible food intake
* Difficulty maintaining stamina during the day
* Previous diagnosis of other auto-immune disease (e.g. Celiac disease)

Symptoms of Celiac Disease:
* Bloating
* Constipation
* Intermittent diarrhea
* Depression and irritability
* Fatigue/Energy loss
* Hair loss
* Lactose intolerance
* Very dry skin
* Dehydration
* Mouth (Canker) sores

People with celiac disease are diagnosed with hypothyroidism more than four times as often as non-celiacs. There is a clear association between Hashimotos thyroiditis and celiac disease.
