Hi there, I'm new to this site and was just looking for a bit of advice. Apologies if this is a bit of a long post. My brother was recently diagnosed with under active thyroid. With the ongoing undiagnosed symptoms I have had ever since I can remember, I asked my doc for thyroid test, she wrote to me and said all came back normal. I then had a letter a few weeks later saying I has thyroid anyibodies...is this normal?? She didn't seem concerned. She wanted to leave things as was but I didn't feel happy to do so. She said she would refer me to an endo (reluctantly) I've seen him and he said all the readings are fine, I do have the antibodies which mean I have the 'thyroid gene' (or something like that), they will monitor with routine bloods. it's not that I'm looking for medication or anything, just looking for answers, he did mention steroid level was on the low end or normal and would looks at andrenal glands and food allergies....I got the feeling that perhaps he doesn't think this is what is causing my symptoms....thank you
