I was diagnosed with a slightly under active thyroid 2 years ago. I was prescribed Levothyroxine, which i took in different dosages for about a year. I stopped when i realised it was making me feel worse, weight gain, achy joints. Long story short i have recently seen an endo who gave me the following results can anyone help me understand what this means and whether there is anything i can do to help myself. Endo is saying not.
Free T4 10.3
Free T34 4.6
Thyroid antibody strongly positive at greater than 1000
Apparently this suggests i have Auto-immune thyroiditis, ( Hashimotos)
Any help would be great, i am not taking any medication only Vit d, magnesium. vit B12, vit c, acidophelus, & chromium supplements
I am also going through the menopause, so not sure if the weight gain could be more to do with that ?
