i have just received the results of my thyroid autoantibodies.
They are. 11.6 U/mL Abnormal result. ( 0 - 9U/mL)
My GP said that they are borderline abnormal and probably raised due to my age, (63 years). I have had sub clinical Hypothyroidism for several years, (l posted my previous thyroid results last week). I have many classical symptoms of hypothyroidism which wax and wane. Most of the time I am exhausted, lethargic, cold and aching etc.
My daughter has Hashimoto's disease and my sister has several auto immune illnesses including pernicious anaemia. Could I have Hashimoto's, or is it just my age causing all these signs and symptoms? My doctor will not increase my Levothyroxine until my TSH goes up again meanwhile I continue to feel a shadow of my previous self.
