Hi. I've suffered Hypo symptoms for years but levels have always been within range, although recently have been 'borderline'.
GP phoned with latest results to say that TPO antibodies are high and 'suggestive of an autoimmune thyroid disease' (see results below)
He is referring me to an Endo at Wythenshawe hospital.
In one way I'm relieved that I wasn't going mad and there IS something wrong with my thyroid.
On the other hand I am concerned that I may be turned away to suffer until my thyroid levels are outside if range.
I'm also slightly nervous of what having an auto immune disease means. I've read that you can be pre-disposed to other AI diseases, and that it can also lead to cardiac problems.
Head swimming at the moment. If anyone can give me any advice so I am forearmed before I see my Endo, I'd be grateful. Thanks
