I’ve just joined this forum for some advice. I have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and have recently had a baby. I have been feeling awful which I’ve put down to thyroid. I’ve had the following symptoms:
Hair loss, IBS type symptoms, knee pain, carpal tunnel, anxiety, heart palpitations, hot flushes, pain in my thyroid area.
I’ve recently had a full blood count done and an autoimmune profile and I’ve got these strange results:
ANA antibodies - weakly positive 1:320 fine speckled
Anti Smooth Muscle Antibodies - weakly positive
My liver results are:
Serum ALT - 15 (0-49)
Total alkaline phosphatase - 51 (30-130)
Serum total bilirubin - 17 (0-21)
Albumin - 45 (35-50)
I’m no medic but my liver levels look ok. I’m terrified about the elevated antibodies though. Previously ov r the past few years I’ve had elevated ANA which has always been put down to the Hashimotos but now the ASMA is elevated too. Am I heading towards Autoimmune Hepatitis?
