Reposting this - hoping to get a reply this time.
Had blood test done on 12/5/14 for thyroid antibodies. Results as follows;
TBII (TRAB) 2.2 iu/L ( >1.8 iu/L is regarded as positive)
TPO Antibodies <23 iu/ml (<100)
TSH <0.05 (0.2-4.00)
Free T4 46.4 (10-20)
Total T3 3.2 (0.9-2.5)
Does this mean I have Graves? How high is the 2.2 iu/L?
Currently on 20mg carbimazole (since 14/5/14) and 80mg propranolol (for last 4-6 weeks).
I am already trying to improve diet quality and quantity and taking B12, D3, acetyl-carnitine plus plenty of protein to maintain muscle mass. Also trying to get more than 6h sleep each day, doing meditation, removing dietary stimulants and allergens (gradually) and reduce stress. I run, swim and walk. All following advice/info given on this forum.
I want to avoid having RAI or surgery so my question is
What is best way to go about reducing antibodies to gain remission?
