I got my results back yesterday after a day but I am really puzzled by the numbers going up and down in the last couple of months even. I don't take any medication as "there is nothing wrong" and the antibodies "are a virus"!!!!
I do take sublingual B12 which contains B5 and folate but I didn't take it on the morning of the test or in fact no supplements. I also take magnesium, Vitamin K2, silica, boron two different types of probiotics. I recently started on selenium/zinc for about the last four weeks or so. I have severe osteoporosis but am inclined to have high blood calcium so no supplements with suspected primary hyperparathyroidism. Whilst I was having a second ultrasound to confirm parathyroid adenoma, this particular sonographer said he didn't think it was an adenoma but there was a lot of inflammation and suggested Graves and that I should have an antibodies test. The good old endo surgeon ignored this in March and instead wanted me to take high doses of Vitamin D to "stir up the parathyroid and calcium" After 12 weeks it didn't do hardly anything but vitamin D was 158 by July. Antibodies were very high.
So months on because I am not getting anywhere, decided to investigate myself and I went on a strict GF diet only about 5 weeks ago I also had a food intolerance test done by a lady at home. Well I don't know if it is coincidence but my antibodies have reduced by 150 since July (having increased a lot up until October) but they are still about 10 times higher than should be. The thyroglobulin antibodies have also gone down a fraction too from 122 to just under 115. I don't understand how I have a high B12 and pretty low folate and low ferritin level. I didn't bother having the Vitamin D test included which I think maybe I should have done. Anyway, this is what the results were and I would be very grateful for any comments . Thank you.
P.S. It goes without saying I feel pretty crap most of the time, really bad aches and pains in my back mostly not helped with torn rotator cuff and frozen shoulder but I have to say the last week or so I have felt a lot better mentally.
