Good evening everyone.
My GP diagnosed me with Primary Hypothyroidism in December 2013. I still have a relatively high TSH despite medication consisting of T3 and T4, which she now wants to raise.
One of my blood tests confirmed I have an autoimmune result which my GP says are anti-bodies attacking my thyroid, but its not Hashimotos because I'm hypothyroid not hyperthyroid. She also says that the lab declined to test for anti TPO or TgAb as these would undoubtedly be raised. When I asked her the question, will these anti-bodies continue to attack my thyroid to destruction she said no and I was not to worry unnecessarily. Should I be worried and how do I know if these anti-bodies are anti-thyroid and not some other anti-body unrelated to my thyroid, such as RA, Lupus or Celiac. Any information would be great!
