From what I see online is that there may be a connection between leaky gut, thyroid and cholesterol. Docs prefer to give medicines usually life long but I saw that thyroid disease can be reversed with healthy lifestyle and diet changes and it mainly depends on the gut health. One interesting case I read was the person was cured of thyroid disease after fixing the leaky gut by going gluten free. Could anyone shed some light on this topic particularly autoimmune thyroid disease. http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/9515902

    I cannot fully answer this as I don't know of studies that directly link them. That said, there is a supplement, called Bromelain you can ask your doctor about that helped me with thyroid levels and with IBS, and there seems to be some connection to assisting with cholesterol. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3529416 – threetimes Aug 25 '17 at 20:04

    Hi @threetimes thank you for your desire to help with this answer, but you are offering medical advice and that is discouraged here on HealthSE.

    @threetimes even well-intended as it is, your advice is toward the top of the slippery slope of recommending treatment. If the question were completely devoid of personal advice (clinical information) then a variation on your question would be appropriate, especially with the paper cited. – DoctorWhom Aug 26 '17 at 7:09
  • @Sunny welcome to SE! This question is presenting lab values and symptoms, thoughts on what diagnoses you might have, and is asking for information and treatment recommendations. Check out this meta on reasons why we can't give medical advice and why your question qualifies as medical advice request. – DoctorWhom Aug 26 '17 at 7:11
  • If you rephrase your entire question to ask the underlying question whether there is evidence for ways that autoimmune-related hypothyroidism conditions can be reversed in any way, rather than relying on lifelong thyroid supplementation, then your question could be answered. Otherwise I must vote to close it for now. I'll retract my vote if adjusted! – DoctorWhom Aug 26 '17 at 7:11
