I had my total thyroidectomy nine years ago, and never had stomach/digestion issues before Graves. Since then, the list of things I cannot consume gets longer and longer every year. It started with gluten, then dairy, and now that list includes meats, some berries and more. I've been able to return to some items that bothered me for awhile, like nuts.
I really like my current GP who happens to also be an internal medicine doctor. But I've learned from having a few that they don't seem to have any idea on what's happening (at least those in my area), and my previous endocrinologist didn't express much concern when I started with stomach problems. An allergist was able to do testing of some food allergies, but she has retired. Even though I am avoiding many foods and beverages, it seems like I never know when I will have a reaction.
I'm curious if others have experienced this, and if anyone has any advice. Thanks.
