Problems with Traditional Flour

By triggering the production of the protein zonulin, gluten causes the tight junctions in the gut to open. Gluten proteins then leak into the bloodstream. Your body responds by making antibodies against these proteins, which have the potential to cross react with thyroid tissue. In other words, the gluten antibodies also can also cause your immune system to attack your thyroid, causing functional hypothyroidism and a slowed metabolic rate.

Wheat gluten consists of the prolamin gliadin and the glutelin glutenin.

Prolamins are storage proteins and glutelin is the glue that holds everything together.

Tissue transglutaminase (TGase) is an enzyme present in all tissues and is involved in many critical body functions. TGase II plays an integral role in the development of celiac disease.

TGase II is responsible for the deamidation of gliadin in the small intestinal mucosa. Deamidated gliadin becomes more immunogenic, resulting in the production of proinflammatory cytokines.

This inflammatory response leads to antibodies to TGase II. In early stages of celiac disease, these antibodies can be found in the small intestine, and as the disease progresses, in the serum.

TGase II antibodies have been shown in numerous studies to interact with the TGase II enzymes in different organs.

It has also been found that there is a positive correlation between TGase II antibodies and anti-TPO (antithyroperoxidase) antibodies, organ-specific antibodies which attack thyroid tissue.

This study (Experimental and Clinical Endocrinology & Diabetes) found that a 6-month gluten-free diet improved markers of autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) in afflicted women. In this study, 34 women with AITD were split into a gluten-free diet or a control group. Titers of antibodies against thyroglobulin (Tg) and thyroid peroxidase (TPO) (which are the precursor to thyroid hormone and the enzyme that converts that precursor into bona fide thyroid hormone, respectively) were measured at the beginning and end of the 6-month intervention. The gluten-free diet was successfully able to decrease Tg and TPO titers, as seen below.
