Hi. I recently was tested and discovered that I had TSH of 7.92 (range 0.5-4.0) and TPOab of 692. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism due to autoimmune and prescribed with levothyroxine (now on 75mg after second testing and a noted reduction in TSH levels). I am confused though because all the research I have done points to Hashimotos but my GP has told me that I have Graves' disease and that it can't be too bad because my eyes aren't bulging (his exact words). He has written that I have Graves in my notes. Am I going mad or is he mistaken?? I would have thought that the fact that I have been prescribed levothyroxine clearly points out that I have hypothyroidism rather than hyperthyroidism?????
