Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
how high was your anti thyroid peroxidase antibody levels?
what is your TSH levels?
that is an elevated ATPO
your TSH is a bit on the high side
and this can be a sign of hashimotos thyroiditis.
you may need higher doses of thyroid hormone to get your TSH levels down between 0.3 and 3.0 range.
hashimotos thyroiditis can be unpredictable since your body can make high or low levels of antibodies against your body's own thyroid gland.
the high anti thyroid peroxidase levels point to hashimotos
ask to also get anti thyroid globulin antibody levels checked as well.
