After my post last week-ish (to which no one seemed to know the answer to) I have found out that as my antibodies are now within normal range and I am officially in remission from hashimotos! YAY.
After researching and speaking to specialists, I've found that as long as my antibodies are within range and I remain symptom free - this is it. The destination. The place I've been working to so hard to get to. The place that seemed so far away, a life time away - is finally here, and as you'd expect I couldn't be happier.
Of course, if I happen to eat something that is a trigger for me (I now know what these are) I could, of course, upset my immune system and have the hashis go off again? It's a risk. But, I've removed the triggers, (never going near them again) healed the gut (ongoing maintenance) and attended to the nutrient deficiencies. Hormones are slowing getting there. So fingers crossed....
I wanted to put this out there so that it can give hope to someone should they need it but also, that it helps with future enquiries - when people asking questions that are important to them on here, it's amazing when fellow people on the same journey are able to help - The help that we get on here makes all the difference - especially when that person maybe feeling down, awful, sick or maybe totally alone and as if no-one else in the world understands or listens. To have an answer is just the magic they need.
Wishing everyone the absolute best on their journeys.
