Thyroid antibodies: Hi everyone my... - Fertility Network UK
The TRab antibodies will usually cause overactive thyroid (Graves’ disease) and TPO antibodies will cause under active thyroid (Hashimoto). It is possible to have antibodies elevated but thyroid levels in ranges. I think it might cause some problems with implantation but best to speak to your doctor. Best way to reduce antibodies is to go gluten free, dairy free, grain free and sugar free. My husband has Graves’ disease and is following an autoimmune diet. I hope your doctor will have some good advice for you. X
So sorry to hear this Orla 🙁 The autoimmune illnesses are tricky and unfortunately can take long time to heal. I’m convinced that my husband’s sperm issues are caused by his autoimmune illness. His trying to follow Amy Myers protocol. He will have his antibodies tested in a few weeks so we will see what the results are. Well done for reducing the antibodies, this is definitely a great sign xx
Hi Blueberryy. I also have very high antibodies. My first test result for thyroid TPO was 1711 and the range it should be at is 5 or under😳😳😳
I only found out this reading just before starting my third round of icsi( end of August just gone) So consultant put me on a steroid starting at the time of my stimms and also did Intralipids infusion which is meant to help the ammune system.I got one blastocyst to transfer on that round but unfortunately got a BFN. However I did feel that the steroids and intralipids helped in some way because after that round we tested my antibodies again and it had dropped to 1000... still very high I know but it was going in the right direction. At my follow up appointment with my consultant she explained that auto ammune can cause implantation failure and also you are at higher risk of miscarriage. She explained that most people with auto ammune disorders are more likely to carry higher NK cells... these are natural killer cells that attack the body and in people trying to get pregnant wether through ivf or naturally they can attack the embryo causing implantation failure or cause miscarriage 😪 I decided with advice from my consultant to get tested to see if I did indeed carry higher NK cells. It’s called a zip test and cost me 350 euros I got the results Monday this wk and of course all my readings were wrong 😩. My consultant said that my aggressive cell readings were WAY to high and my good cells were WAY to low😪 she told me that we hopefully could turn this round in bout 9 wks with medication. So I started on treatment on Tuesday if you want me to go into further what I’m on just pm me xxx
Also by looking up how to improve good NK cells. It’s says keep a healthy gut, reduce toxic stress, raise melatonin levels, eat more blueberries, garlic and mushroom. Make sure your getting enough selenium... you will get this from Brazil nuts. And up your beta Carotene. I started this diet three weeks ago and my antibodies TPO reading came back this time at 490 so massive drop hopefully the meds I’ve started on will help get me back to the normal 5 range ❤️
Wish you all the best and any questions don’t hesitate to contact me. Also if your consultant gives you any different advice that you think might help me please let me know xxx
