This month is my 18th month of treatment for an overactive thyroid with Hashi's antibodies and no Graves antibodies. I have been on block and replace for the majority of treatment which, as I have gathered, is a little unusual for Hashi's patients although finally my levels are normal on 2 x 20mg Carb and 75mcg thyroxine.
My endo has advised to come off all medications this month to see if I remit. I am not at all sure what to expect. I don't even actually know if my thyroid is truly overactive or underactive now. This was all triggered after giving birth in May 2014. Symptoms starting around the August/September.
How long do your levels have to be euthyroid to be classed as being in remission?
If I wasn't to remit, is there a certain amount of time it would take for me to feel symptoms again?
Should I ask to have autoantibodies retested before coming off of medication?
When should I book a blood test after coming off?
