I have just come back from an appointment with the endo. Basically, she is not prepared to do anything until my blood results go off the scale. I suppose I kind of knew that would happen. She did tell me something that I didn't know - that the surgery did test my antibodies and did get a result back showing positive. But then she said that it doesn't mean anything as peroxidase antibodies don't attack the thyroid, they just prove that my body is capable of making antibodies. So, basically, she said that I am a prime candidate for autoimmune diseases as I am already diagnosed Coeliac and I have tested positive for for thyroid peroxidase antibodies. I have been feeling like s**t for 18 months and have a list of symptoms as long as your arm BUT............they aren't going to do anything! She then sent me for blood tests - a repeat TFT, a test for diabetes and one for Addison's disease. To add insult to injury, the nurse couldn't get any blood out of either of my arms so I have got to wait and see the nurse at my own practice.
