When I saw my gp at the end of July I asked if I had hashimotos as my results showed serum thyroid peroxidase antibody (xabcy) 131iu/ml my tsh was 8.91 (0.34-5.6) ft4 9.1(7.5-21.1) . The doctor said I'm subclinical and don't have hashimotos . She put me on 25 mcg levo . I saw her again at the end of sept and my tsh was. 5.51(0.34-5.6).
She was happy with the results said I'm in range and didn't feel I needed any increase in my levo and would see me in 6 months.
I have booked another gp appt for tomorrow with a different doctor as I'm feeling so tired , legs feel heavy , I'm always cold and I am getting air hunger sometimes . I also wake up with numb little fingers .
How high does the antibodies have to be to be called hashimotos ?
Any help / info would be much appreciated
