Thyroglobulin Ab

Thyroglobulin Ab

Morning all

I've been posting in the thyroid forums, as I had a blood test return the positive antibodies result.

I've now started to cut gluten out of my diet to see how that goes.

I've experienced, fatigue, constipation, diarrhea, dizziness, ear ringing, hot sweats, wind and bad memory, psoriasis most of my life. From my twenties and I'm 38.

I'm onto my second week gluten free, and still feel tired, abut dizzy and yesterday depression hit me hard.

I'm not sure if it's early days? But my stomach seems better, no more wind or diarrhea! I maybe seem a bit constipated though?

I couldn't get tested for ceoliac yesterday, as I'm off gluten.

I am wondering if gluten is the problem here? I just need to get it out my system?

  • I also have Hashimotos and am Gluten Free. It is often mentioned on the Thyroid UK Forum here on HU that going GF helps with reducing anti-bodies.

    I would suggest you have vitamins and minerals tested - B12 - Ferritin - Folate - VitD as often they are low with Hashimotos. Are you on T4 ?

    Many of your symptoms could also be LOW B12 - they seem to overlap. Adding in Magnesium could help with the constipation or a good and regular dose of VitC - taken to bowel tolerance :-)

  • Hi I'm on nothing at the moment, basically the doc says that's my levels are in normal range the Nhs won't do anything.

    I've shown them my thyroglobulin antibodies and she dismissed any issue saying that people can have them and has took more blood to check my T3 and ths again? They won't do t4 and thyroglobulin antibodies apparently only an endo can request that?

  • Anti-bodies attack the thyroid and eventually you will become very HYPO - there is an article written by Dr Anthony Toft about treating the thyroid when there are anti-bodies - to prevent the attacks on the thyroid. He was a past president of the BTA - British Thyroid Association so your GP should listen. More details on the Thyroid UK forum ....

  • Yea that's what I'm trying to instill in my GP, why do I have to wait to become ill before they will do anything.. madness

  • Obtain the book/article to show your GP - not a case of instilling - just show them ..... As I mentioned - more info on Thyroid UK.
