Even though my Thyroglobulin levels are still reading 385 (<115), neither the GP or endocrinologist have ever commented on these readings.
I was initially told I had primary hypothyroidism and I am prescribed a T4 and T3 combination. I know the treatment is the same for Hashimoto's and primary hypothyroidism and I have some really good spells of good health and possibly as many periods where I feel most unwell. I can't explain why or understand why this should happen. I am gluten free and have been now for six months. The GP makes no comment on this either! I read of so many people saying that they have been diagnosed with Hashimoto's. Maybe I'm over complicating things, but I would rather not be gf if there are no health benefits. My anti-bodies have only come down marginally between my private blood tests. Does it really matter one way or another?
The last 10 days have been so unpleasant and I can guess very accurately what my body temp will be on my symptoms alone which can differ from early morning to late afternoon. Yesterday lunchtime I was 33.1 and feeling horrid and I gradually improved when my temp climed to 35.5.
Forward planning is a thing of the past and my trip to Barcelona in two weeks time could be very enjoyable or miserable. I guess we all take a chance and hope for the best.
