😡😬 Frustrated and Angry

Well just had the telephone consultation with a young t**t GP regarding my TPOA antibodies results . It would seem I'm high 42.6 the range is 0.6 so he agreed I had Hashinotos !! Not that he would change anything coz I'm normal. I just about blew up NORMAL nooooooo I'm not normal I'm tired, overweight have high cholesterol 😡 He couldn't wait to get off the phone when I started questioning him. I also got my Vitamin D back its 97 the range is 50 whatever that means probabably I'm low ???? Maybe someone who knows a lot more than me can tell me 😭

Carriebaby,

High thyroid peroxidase antibodies are positive for autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto's) which causes 90% of hypothyroidism. There is no cure or treatment for Hashimoto's but 100% gluten-free diet may improve symptoms and reduce antibodies.

Vitamin D 97 is excellent and you won't need to supplement D3 until October when ultraviolet level is low.

Hi. I have an ingling of an idea of what you're going through. My doc said my questions were "too indepth"..... sees no point in all these "extra" blood tests...

Vit D levels at 97 sound ok. If it is 50 or below it is deemed that you need top up.

A few years ago 50 was consider ok, but they moved the range upwards, so now 50 is the new low.....

Divide your D3 result by 2.5 .....

The D3 result of 97 - was it nmol/L or ng/L - you didn't say. If it was the first then you need to divide your result by 2.5. The website I posted does have a converter :-)
