I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism three months ago and have been on 100mcg of levothyroxine a day since. I saw my GP yesterday and asked him if I had thyroid antibodies (and therefore Hashimoto's). He said there was no evidence of antibodies. I understand this is reasonably unusual. Does it mean that I don't have an autoimmune disease, just a failing thyroid?
