  • Welcome to the forum, Katiegirl123456.

    Thyroid peroxidase antibodies are positive for autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto's). There is no cure for Hashimoto's which causes 90% of hypothyroidism. Treatment is for the low thyroid levels it causes. Many people have found that 100% gluten-free diet is helpful in reducing Hashi flares, symptoms and eventually antibodies.



    Have your TSH, FT4 and FT3 thyroid levels been tested? If so, please post with the ranges (the figures in brackets after results).

    Explanations of low WBC and platelets are in labtestsonline.org/understa...

  • Thank you for your reply. I will try the 100% gluten-free diet.

    The levels you request are

    TSH 1.59 mlU/L [0.3 -4.5]

    FT4 17.4 pmol/L [10.0 - 22.0]

    FT3 3.72 pmolL [3.1 - 6.8]

    Kind Regards.

  • Katiegirl123456,

    There is scope for a dose increase to raise FT4 and FT3 which should improve fatigue and, perhaps, weakness. Most people will feel well with TSH 1.0 or lower and FT4 and FT3 higher in range.
