It's been a while since I posted and I have spent the last five months trying to get to the bottom of my palpitations and general heart 'cartwheelery' and return of hypo symptoms. I am on 20mg T3 only (NHS prescribed) and have only just got back to that dose having gone down to 10mg at one point. I think taking the dose in four rather than two doses has helped. I am under cardiac investigation but have had several private tests done as well as NHS.
My question (I have several but will post them separately) is about how significant is a drop in thyroid antibodies. When I was first diagnosed in 2007, and before I had any treatment, my Anti-Thyroidperidoxase abs reading was 884ku/l (0-50). I have not had another antibody test until last week. My GP declined to give me one recently so I had it done in the Blue Horizon Thyroid+10 test (mainly to get FreeT3 as this was also refused on NHS!). My results were: AntiThyroidperidoxase abs 121.9 kIU/L (<34); Anti Thyroglobulin Abs 310.9 kU/L (<115). Is this good news? Or do the antibody levels come down with treatment? One of several things I have done recently is to go gluten free about three months ago. Thank you for any insight into this.
