In discussing my recent vitamin plans I discovered the following in my doctor's notes:
Test resultThyroid peroxidase antibody level Report, Abnormal, Make an appointment to see doctor
Coded entryThyroid peroxidase antibody level 48 iu/mL [< 100]
I have only ever had my TPOAb tested back in 2014 when we first looked at my thyroid. Here are my results from then:
TSH [0.2 - 4.0] 5 4.4
FT4 [10 - 20] 11.4 12.8
TPOAb [<100] - 48
Originally, looking at the range and my result I thought that I was fine. However when I've just gone back through my notes I spotted the comment where it says the result was abnormal.
Could that mean that I actually have Hashimoto's then?
I eat gluten free and have had episodes of other autoimmune disease noted - like Raynaud's, and there has been pernicious anaemia in my family history...
