... Dear people, I read about steriod use for dealing with the facial swelling that comes with Hashimoto's. I have Hashimoto's and I'm very swollen from time to time. Of course I'm taking thyroid replacements and I find myself doing better because of it but sometimes, like 2, 3 times in a month, I am so swollen in my face and eyes. My eyes because sunken and very red. The... (0 replies)
... I think a ped endo is appropriate, but your daughter also needs to see a ped rheum. There is no reason to let her suffer and feel bad for another year. I think she has Hashimoto's autoimmune thyroiditis, based on + anti-thyroid antibodies, and with her TSH level, she is hypothyroid and would feel better, with more energy, on thyroid replacement. The low thyroid can affect her... (4 replies)

... With that family history it would definitely be a good idea to have the test done. I come from a multi Hashimoto family myself. ... (5 replies)

... Welcome and I am sorry you are feeling so awful. In looking at your labs, the overall picture would suggest an autoimmune thyroiditis, an inflammation of the thyroid gland caused by antibodies your immune system is producing against your own thyroid tissue. That is suggested by the high thyroid peroxidase antibodies, high inflammatory markers, swallowing discomfort, enlarged... (2 replies)
... Me: Hashimoto's. Have been taking 88 mcg Synthroid M-F and 100 Synthroid on Saturday and Sunday. Doc added 5 mcg Lithothyronine (Cytomel) 6 weeks ago based on these labs: TSH 1.16 range 0.40-4.50 T4 FREE 1.4 range 0.8-1.8 T3 FREE 2.3 range 2.3-4.2 T3 TOTAL 80 range 76-181 For over 3 years, I still have Hashi symptoms on and off.

... My 28-year-old daughter's TSH was below 0 .3 (hyperthyroid) and she had high antibodies on the test indicating autoimmune they told us . So she went to see a specialist. I myself have Hashimoto's but her symptoms are more like hypo then hyper. The specialist is repeating the blood work but said it could be one of three things- nodules, which he didn't feel, Graves'... (4 replies)
... Unfortunately, lack of information from doctors seems to occur far too often. I was told virtually nothing when I was first diagnosed with Hashimoto's 20 years ago. The endo told me my thyroid didn't work, but assured me that the condition was easily treated with Synthroid. That was it, the sum of information imparted to me. It took me years of feeling sub-par all the... (5 replies)
... Hi, I am new to this board. I have Hashimoto's, and had my twin daughters thyroid tested and I was hoping for some advice on what you think of their labs. I only have one of them presently. I am concerned Holly's Tsh is high, and her FT 4 is low. The doctor said it looks great and in range. What do you think? The labs for Holly are Tsh 3.9 (.270-4.2) FT4 1.27... (1 replies)
... My endo explained the options a little better and was not as concerned with my labs as my PCP. I am going to have a biopsy scheduled soon and will know more after that. I was told that I could opt to do an uptake & scan to see other they are "hot" nodules but since I am self pay I could potentially have to pay for that as well as a biopsy. I definitely felt better after... (3 replies)
... Thank you so much for your response. Since I don't know much about this.... so my TPO is classified as very high? I have an appointment booked with a new endocrinologist. Hoping to be taken serious. Can you tell me what can happen if I were to have unmonitored Hashimoto's? Grateful for response. (3 replies)
... I was just wondering can you see or feel the nodules?? My tpo and tgab are both high and tsh t3 and t4 are all on the low side. I can feel or see any nodules but I'm getting a ultrasound on Tuesday. Post your results and Ill be thinking of you hope all works out!! (3 replies)
... Your PCP is wrong on at least two counts. There isn't anything hyperthyroid about your labs. Your FT4 and T3 are most definitely in the hypOthyroid range. He's being fooled by the lowish-TSH, but he ought to be smarter than that to have a medical degree. And you aren't necessarily "looking at thyroid cancer". If he used that exact phrase, he's a fool. Yes, the nodules... (3 replies)
... Hello :wave: You sure should get your thyroid function tests run again, clearly you're not properly monitored :rolleyes: Your very high TPOAb indicates Hashimoto's thyroiditis which is the most common cause for hypothyroidism. Your previous labs still looked ok, but a lot can happen in 15 months. (3 replies)
... I am very confused at what I was told by my PCP. I have been referred to an Endocrinologist to test for Thyroid cancer and I am starting to get real nervous and worried about what is going to happen on friday. My TPO Ab is 168 (ref 0-34); Thyroglobulin, Antibody is 11.9 (ref 0.0-0.9); T3 is 1.88 (ref 0.77-4.22 nmol/l); FT4 is 9.32 (ref 7.86-22.70 pmol/l) and TSH is 0.84 (ref... (3 replies)
... I can comment on some of your labs and your overall situation, but some things don't quite fit in neatly. Your anti-TPO of over 1000 is a definite sign of Hashimoto's autoimmune thyroiditis. Nodules in this condition are extremely common, and yours is small. Your labs indicate no sign of parathyroid dysfunction. Your high TSH indicates hypothyroidism. Your pain and swallowing...

... It is not unusual for thyroid antibodies to be this high, it just supports the diagnosis of Hashimoto's as the cause of your hypothyroidism. After the gland has been rendered inactive by these antibodies, which typically takes several years, the antibodies slowly come down and may disappear altogether. They only need to be tested once, as there is no point really in following... (4 replies)
... You don't have to be alarmed, now that you're likely past child-bearing years... ? Knowing that you have Hashimoto's is almost just a matter of curiosity, really. It's the most common cause of hypothyroidism in developed countries, and it doesn't change the treatment at all. TPO antibodies might be reduced by up to 40% by taking a daily selenium supplement, but that won't... (4 replies)
... Welcome, and I'm happy to give you my opinion and I think others will respond too. Yes, I would pursue anti-thyroid antibody testing. I think it is important to know what is causing the hypothyroidism, and the cause has implications for your overall health and that of your relatives, since there is some hereditary tendancy to Hashimoto's and other autoimmune disorders. Hashi's... (4 replies)
