Hello. I would like to have my thyroid antibodies tested as they have not been tested for a long time and are not even on my endocrinologist's records. When I last saw my endo, he said that he seemed to remember my GP's tests showing that I did not have the antibodies to be diagnosed with Hashimoto's, but he said it was probably still an auto-immune problem and the cause did not matter as the treatment was the same.
I am due to see my very helpful new GP and would like to ask to be tested to see if my underactive thyroid is caused by an autoimmune problem. Can you tell me what antibodies I should be asking to be tested for other than Hashimoto's?
I have still not resolved my energy problems despite taking T3 and I am looking to try some complementary therapies working in conjunction with my GP. I think it would be helpful to this to know whether I am dealing with an autoimmune condition or something else.
Any help on what tests to request gratefully received!
