The reason i'm asking about these levels is that my GP said this could be a problem for me when I try to get pregnant in the next few months. I started with overactive thyroid which went unnoticed for years (started around 2006). I had radioactive treatment and now have an underactive thyroid (now had this for approx. 3 years and take Levothyroxine at 150mcg one day and 125mcg the following day). My TSH levels show as 3.67 mU/L. The GP couldn't understand why the antibody level was so high when my TSH levels are what she said 'OK'.
I've read some scary stories about miscarriages, birth defects etc which has scared me.
I was taking Methotrexate for Psoriatic Arthritis but I stopped those 8 months ago in a bid to try for a baby. I've also got Pernicious Anaemia and have 3 monthly B12 jabs but my husband also gives me extra jabs, my B12 level is 304 ng/L.
Is there anything you can do without a GP to lower the antibodies levels?
Also is this definitely something which could affect getting pregnant.
Any help or advice at all would be most appreciated.
