I don't have a specific answer to your question, I just wanted to see if you'd read the study about selenium and thyroid antibodies. They used 200 mcg per day and saw a significant decrease in antibody levels. And it's possible (though I'm not sure how probable) that you could've changed your dietary intake of selenium by eliminating wheat, since some areas of the country have generally low amounts of selenium in the soil BUT some wheat-growing areas are quite high--so not everyone would be in this situation, but some may be.
But if you take a multi with a hefty amount of selenium then that makes that a lot less likely as to what's going on.
i have hashis....went gluent free in april....reduced synthroid in july and again this week b/c my tsh is so low. dr thinks there is a link. have to ask about antibody levels though.
are you under stress? i know that can make your antibodies skyrocket.
