Autoimmune thyroid disease? Help?
Hi All, I also posted this is my journal where you can find out more information about me ([url]http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/showthread.php?7168-Beauty-s-Journal-from-the-beginning[/url]!), but this has to do with my thyroid, specifically. Wasn't there a great thread going about a month or so ago about the thyroid? Any help is much appreciated! :-)
Some of the test results have come in (today!), and we are waiting for others.
Here they are:
Thyroid peroxidase antibody level POSITIVE
So far the diagnosis indicates consistency with autoimmune thyroid disease, from those last two readings. Not surprising, since I have celiac disease.
We’re waiting for the Thyroglobulin and anti THS antibody test results to come in. I don’t know what those are.
I’m hoping that once we get my thyroid under control I will feel 100%. I know I’m doing all the right things. Please, anyone, if you know more about how to interpret my thryroid results, let me know. My doctor admitted she hardly knows anything about them.
