Does anyone know what, if anything, happens to Hashimoto's antibodies after the thyroid gland is removed? I had total thyroidectomy 30 years ago but health has continued to deteriorate since and I have systemic inflammation. Is Hashimoto's just one aspect of the auto-immune spectrum or is it the trigger and remains in the body continuing to cause destruction? Or maybe it's the Epstein-Barr virus I had earlier than Hashimotos that's still causing havoc? The inflammation is getting worse and more widespread. My GP says I just have to put up with it. Any thoughts?
