... Since your TPO antibodies were only slightly elevated, I would ask for TG antibodies to be checked. Either one if elevated, can indicate Hashimoto disease, and it may be that your TG antibodies are higher, and would answer that question. ... (1 replies)
... Hi guys! :wave: So, I have read the message boards for a long time now, but this is the first time becoming a member. I've suffered from Hypothyroid-like symptoms for seven years now. I recently had an episode of Hyperthyroid-like symptoms, and I was suspecting Hashimoto's so I got my TPO antibodies done again. They were at 11. Lab range only flags it if it is above 34,...

... The Hashi's has not caused anything for you except thyroid failure. If your thyroid hormones are being appropriately replaced for your body's needs, it will be as if you didn't have Hashi's. Hypothyroidism can cause difficulty with the ovarian process. Sometimes, TPO antibodies are responsible for miscarriage and early delivery. Proper hormone replacement helps with... (1 replies)
... I was diagnosed with Hashi's around 25 yrs old. I'm now 39 and going into Perimenopause. Anyone else with early Perimenopause and Hashis? I guess I'm just surprised this is happening already. I've always had fertility issues because of the Hashimotos, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. My symptoms of Perimenopause are hot flashes, night sweats, feeling cold a lot,... (1 replies)
... I really appreciate your input. I'm out of my league here so far. So it is reasonable that the synthroid would make me too tired to do anything at about noon for the rest of the day? When without it, I can pretty much have energy all day and feel fine, unless something else has caused my symptoms to flare up. (2 replies)
... Hi Nola, your TPO antibodies are indicative of Hashimoto disease of thyroid, which is an autoimmune disease that destroys the thyroid gland over time. ... (2 replies)
... In the same way that you have one shoe size within the standard range that fits your foot, you have T4/T3/TSH levels that are your normal when you're healthy. With Hashimoto's, TSH isn't all that important, because the antibodies can keep TSH falsely low even when T4/T3 levels become deficient. More important are your FT3/4 levels; they are low-normal, which isn't... (2 replies)
... Hello, everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease. It's taken me some time (especially with all of the brain fog and fatigue) to understand the little that I do about what is happening to me. Last year I had an episode- I became very very dizzy, almost fainted and thought I was having a heart attack. ER showed nothing. Doctor gave me vertigo meds... (2 replies)
... Hi Thyroid Disorders forum, This is my first post so let me say Hello & Thank You for any help ahead of time. I have been dealing with a large number of health symptoms for the past 6 years and have had no luck getting treatment until recently I switched doctors and he's actually started to take me seriously and help and run some tests. Initially he just ran TSH and FT4... (0 replies)
... Hi, Thank you for your responses. Midwest 1 thank you. I recently had a blood test and my TSH is 1.5, my T4 is 14.4 and my FT3 is 4.1,but I heard that some people take both T4 and T3 meds and this can help their condition, so I will look into it. I have also been having night sweats for a year and have told my doctor but he can't explain it, maybe it is because of the... (3 replies)
... I'm so sorry to hear that you are suffering so much. I was diagnosed with Hashis about 25 years ago and since I am on my daily meds (137 mg. Synthroid) I feel perfectly "normal". I exercise, I work.... I don't feel that it deters my life in any way. I do feel best when I eat small amounts of breads and pastas and desserts (as opposed to large amounts) but I don't think that's... (3 replies)
... Merely adjusting the TSH level to any location within the reference range will not restore health to a hypothyroid patient. The levels of free T4 and free T3 must be raised to levels that fill the individual's needs. Make sure your doctor keeps track of the free T4/3 and that they are at least at lab median. Otherwise, you risk staying symptomatic. (3 replies)
... The tests are called anti-TPO (thyroperoxidase) and anti-TG (thyroglobulin). Positive results for either or both would indicate Hashimoto's thyroiditis, which is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in North America. But negative results don't rule out Hashi's, because of the false-negative error rate associated with the tests and the waxing/waning nature of the... (9 replies)
... I am wondering if I one can have a normal life with Hashimoto or do you need to change your life style. ... (3 replies)
... Hi, I have goiter/hashimoto's for 15 years before I finally take thyroid hormone to treat my hypothyroidism, now I have 10 years of treatment that made thyroid back to normal, and now it's smaller than normal according to the ultrasound. and also they found lymph nodes with fatty on both sides. What do you think about the size down? End stage of hashimotos? (1 replies)
... I'm back to post another update in case anyone else goes through what I went through and needs encouragement. My ferritin is over 80 at this point and I have stopped the supplements. I have also started Tirosint and have worked up to 37.5 mcgs for the thyroid issue (Hashimoto's hypothyroidism). Most of the dizziness and lightheadedness is gone!!! The Mirena is... (2 replies)
... Positive TPO antibodies are most commonly associated with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. (They're sometimes found with Graves'.) I don't know that much about PCOS, but I think it frequently goes hand in hand with low thyroid. That may be what you're dealing with. Let us know how it goes with the endo, even if you're told your thyroid is "fine". (2 replies)
... Autoimmune thyroiditis is also known as Hashimoto's thyroiditis or disease, named after the doctor who discovered it. It's a progressive condition. In the earliest stages, there will be no symptoms and thyroid hormone levels will be well within range. But as the TPO (and/or sometimes, Tg) antibodies multiply and do their dirty work, the gland tissue begins to die off,... (9 replies)
... Don't panic. It's not that serious. Your TSH is slightly higher than the average healthy person. Most doctors don't know that, but apparently your MD is a cut above the rest. That's a good thing. See how your T4/T3 are below their lab ranges? That says that you're hypothyroid... That your thyroid gland isn't producing as much of its hormones as your body needs. I... (2 replies)
