So I finally have a copy of all my blood test results since thyroid problems were found, endo diagnosed Hashimotos in March 2011 and I have all results from Jan of that year however I have NO clue which are useful to post for people to advise me on?
One of the reasons i asked for them all at the doctor is that the endo i saw literally said oh you have Hashimotos disease you take the tyroxine and that is all you can do. Never even explained it was an autoimmune disease, what the other complications could do, how so many things I had been suffering with came from this etc etc you all sadly know or have heard about the type. I was then told to get bloods done at dr once a year and off I went, felt worse, worse still and started to research it myself and found you guys and well tried to start to sort myself out. HOWEVER some times i read tales on here and online and wonder do i have hashi's as however bad i feel i think i have it easy compared to so many of you and I wanted to see if my results do in you guys opinions (which I feel I would trust more than the endo thats for sure) indicate Hashi's?
Last blood results from 21-06-13 but feeling awful at the mo and about to request new bloods should I wait for these ones and then post them all? I think its only the TSH you need as all rest vitamins, iron and blood cell counts I think.
what is also now worrying me is I keep being told I should look in to gluten free diet but I thought it was just the american line and well to be honest really didnt want to go gluten free but I have been told Coelliac and Hashimotos often related and on my results from April 2011 there is a note if i was gluten free for at least 6 weeks I am unlikey to have it but if not they should consider gastro referal to have it checked - no one ever even discussed this with me!
so I will be asking about this at the doctors when I go too - do they do this often do we know?
anyway any advise welcome
many thanks x
