Hi there, I have now had another NHS consult with a new doctor, who is very nice and concerned that i've been so unwell but looking at my test results with TPO antibodies at 67 ( >34) she says she's *not* concerned about that and has therefore said she isn't going to treat.
My increasingly heavy periods are being looked at as a cause for concern and iron stores depletion and I've had a referral to the Gynae dept at local hospital. I've been given Transexmic acid and another drug to stop the bleeding (3 weeks and counting!)
Should I just forget the NHS in terms of treating or taking seriously the TPO or is it too low a level anyway to be of concern? Have changed diet (gluten, dairy free)
Or should I press on with private doc and treatment?
