Having learnt loads from this site over the past few months, I was determined to discover if my Hypo was caused by Hashi's. I arranged in December for a blood test to check antibodies (or so I thought) but it wasn't done. I managed to obtain a copy of all my blood tests the other week, going back to my PA diagnosis in 2011 and I had just started to write a letter to my doctor asking if my antibodies could be checked when, looking through my blood test results to demonstrate the need for this, I discovered that shortly after being diagnosed Hypo in May 2012, I had a blood test in July 2012 which showed my TPO antibodies as 730 (0 - 60.00) - this was never mentioned at the time even though it clearly states at the top of the test sheet "Follow-up action: Make an appointment to see doctor".
So - does this mean I have Hashimotos and if so, is there something I should have been doing/should do in order to make this better/go away?? I stopped eating all gluten some time ago and now have no bloating/cramps etc. and tend to follow a Paleo style diet which works well. I am taking all my vitamins (B12, D, Ferritin although not folate as currently too high) so I cannot imagine there is much more I can do??
