Blood results

These are my blood results BEFORE I started treatment back in 2012 when diagnosed whilst living in Greece. I have put their ranges in brackets

TSH 4.51 (0.270-4.20)

Anti TPO 417.60 IU/ml (40)

Anti TG 324.40 IU/ml (115.0)

Are these bad?

I am waiting for results taken last week. I will request print out as advised by you and possible free T3 & T4?

I currently take 75mg thyroxine

Thank you

Antibodies were positive for autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto's) which causes 90% of hypothyroidism. 100% gluten-free diet may improve symptoms and reduce antibodies.

TSH was over range. Some UK GPs diagnose and treat hypothyroidism when TSH is over range, particularly in the presence of positive antibodies, but some won't commence treatment until TSH is >10.

Thank you both. Will look into Gluten free and see what blood results are.
