... TPO antibodies are tests for autoimmune thyroid disease known as Hashimoto disease. The ANA can be positive in many situations as well as Hashimoto disease. The ANA panel and the antithyroid antibodies help to differentiate these diseases to get a more precise diagnosis. ... (1 replies)
... Thank you for your insight. (2 replies)
... No! Do not accept it! You will find it very hard to have a successful pregnancy with those levels. You clearly are dealing with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Your T4/T3 are too low and your TSH too high for pregnancy. And the TPO antibodies are a recognized cause of miscarriage even when thyroid levels happen to be so-called "normal". If you can get a copy of Living Well... (3 replies)

... Few people who are diagnosed with thyroid disease have labs outside the "norms". That said, your TSH is extremely deficient. That doesn't jibe with the low-normal T4/T3. This can happen in the early stages of Hashimoto's thyroiditis, when TSH fluctuates all over the map before the gland eventually stops working. It can happen with pituitary disease, where TSH isn't being... (2 replies)
... Hi, thank you for reply and advice! :), I forgot to mention firstly I had 75 dose and then after 50 pills I started 100, I didn't got any issues with it, and I feel better while I'm on those meds ;) (2 replies)
... Hi :wave: Your dose seems a bit high for a starter dose but it may be what you eventually need. Have you had any issues with it? Have your hypoT symptoms subsided? You definitely seem to need that Vit D too. If you get your symptoms under control with your current doc I don't see any reason to switch to an endo. (2 replies)
... Hi ;) I'm 20. Recently I've had heart palpitations and so my GP diagnosed thyroid problem so now I'm getting treatment from endocrinologist. I would like to ask you if my treatment is right? Im totally new to all this stuff ;) These are my labs before going on thyroid hormone(3mo ago) FT4 - 0,80 ng/dL FT3 - 3,15 pg/mL TSH - 9,5474 uLU/mL TPOAb - 803,02 IU/mL ... (2 replies)
... I need to see the lab's ranges for FT4 and triiodothyronine free (FT3) before saying for sure. But your levels would be below median at the usual testing labs in the US. (Lab ranges vary from facility to facility. The ranges are needed to compare results with.) But I would say you're definitely not dealing with Graves'. TSH is too high; but more importantly, the FTs are... (7 replies)
... Just posting an update as I'm doing better, still not 100%, but to give others hope. The iron deficiency was definitely half of my problem, and I am still working on the Hashimoto's issue, which hopefully is my final problem. I am a pescatarian (eating fish only) who was diagnosed with iron deficiency last October. My ferritin was a 6. I felt dreadful. I can now report... (1 replies)
... Iíve been under treatment for Hashimotoís for over 10 years. For the last 2 years Iíve had low BP (low for me; formerly 110/70, now low 90's over 40's) & heart rate (55 bpm-ish), and lethargy. My regular doctor sent me for a sleep study and stress test and to see a cardiologist. All that is normal. She thinks I should be on anti-depressants. My integrative NP and I met a... (12 replies)
Hypo for 6 years
Jun 18, 2017
... :jester: :( I was sick for 6 years. I know it was my thyroid but every doctor blamed it on my age. I got to the point of sleeping for most of the day after a full 9-10 hours of sleep at night. One doctor found that I had did have nodes on my thyroid but didn't feel like writing a prescription! I finally found a Naturopath and Psychiatrist who confirmed my suspicions. I have... (0 replies)
Frustrated
Jun 17, 2017
... Hi, I am a 45-year old female who has been previously diagnosed with Hashimoto's and treated as hypo. I also was treated in past for prolactinoma treated with bromocriptine. In January of this year my TSH was 6.17 and my T3 was 11. Last week my doc due to my emotions ordered more blood work - she checked my TSH and my prolactin-my TSH was tested twice and came back at...

... MaryMcK, I must have been seeing things! I really thought you mentioned a problem with your eyes. I don't know where I got that. Must be from a problem with my eyes. Getting out into nature is a good stress reducer. It's great that you are getting your energy back and lovely that you can go out walking. I totally agree that we can get so stressed that we don't realize... (12 replies)
... I was out birdwatching yesterday morning and then up late looking for whip-poor-wills - kind of dragging today lol. But not too bad. I'm actually not having any vision problems. Yes, patience is important! Now that I'm not so lethargic I'm not feeling as desperate. Just trying to take it easy and keep moving. I think many of us need to pay attention to stress levels...

... Dear MaryMcK, Birds are wonderful. I have 2 finch socks where I can see the little red or yellow finches from inside the house all day long. They are used to me so I can walk by and see them up close as long as I am quiet and don't move my arms. I saw two brilliant yellow and black orioles and we have a blue bird that visits regularly, as well as Quail and large gray doves.... (12 replies)
... My mother, for the record, has hashimoto. Early this year I went to get blood work done to check for hashimoto to see if my fibromyalgia like symptoms were not hypothyroidism or hashimoto itself. ... (0 replies)
... I'm very glad to see this update. Sounds like cause for optimism. Is this a case of "give it time", like with thyroid medication? And is there any dose adjustment involved or you just get a certain amount from a pre-loaded syringe. Is it every day? How has it been administering it? I hope you continue to see improvement. I'm in week 3 of my increased dose of Naturethroid (a... (12 replies)
... I hope you are over that mean cold! My doctor allows me to up or lower my Nature Throid a little bit as needed, too. It only makes sense. For me when the weather is cold I need the higher dose and when it is hot I need less thyroid. Just a tad of difference works for me. Just a quick update. I know about the possible reactions. I read that reactions to B12 are more... (12 replies)
Low T4, High T3?
May 27, 2017
... Hello everyone I am new to this site and figured I would make this post in hopes that maybe someone out there with a similar experience could help me out. So I went to my doctor recently and got a blood test done because I was worried about my thyroid. My results came back that : -My T3 is high (4.6) -Low T4 (.8) -I have high cholesterol, which I find odd because I have... (3 replies)
... Well if you're truly HypoT the only way to increase your FreeTs is thyroid supplementation (synthetic or natural). Usually TSH is the first test to be taken and one must sometimes fight to get any other tests. If your TSH is high (or even above say 2) that would also be consistent with HypoT. Ask to have it tested, also checking thyroid Abs (TPO and/or TgAb) would be helpful -... (3 replies)
