I have a list of thyroid tests from the last 10 years (below). Early this month I was tested for thyroid peroxidase antibodies and confirmed positive with 110 (ref range >100). I also tested strongly positive on ANA (1:640 nucleolar) with negative auto antibody screen. I have had many hypo symptoms for years but I have always been told tests were 'normal'. The most recent tests were to investigate the regular night sweats I've been having for about 6 months now.
04/04 3.60 14.1
10/05 2.27 17.7
11/06 2.48 15.9
04/09 1.95 10.03 4.31
08/09 1.91 13.8
01/11 4.87 15.1
07/14 2.95 13.07
The GP does not see a need for a follow up of any kind. Is it worth getting a referral to see an endo privately regardless or will I just be dismissed until my tsh gets high enough to meet the nhs reference range? If there is an open minded endo in the midlands I'd love to hear. Also, do you consider regular night sweats as a symptom of hypothyroid? Do you think my blood tests support my experience of hypo symptoms?
I'm lost as to what my options are. Any advice extremely welcome. Thank you very much in advance!
