Hi. I was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with hypothyroidism after a routine blood test and my GP told me it was an auto immune disease. I have noticed from my print out of my blood results that antibodies were not tested. Apart from low Hb and ferritin for which I am on iron tablets (taking these well away from my levo) and high magnesium everything else was within range. Does this therefore mean that this is Hashimotos and should I be requesting antibodies are tested? I am due my next blood test next week as I am on a starter dose of 50mg levo. I don't have a visible goitre but often have that feeling as if something is stuck in my throat.
