Need help interpreting blood test results

Initially, my T3 was low but my TSH was normal. I had and still have positive antithyroglobulin antibodies but next to 0 units of antiperoxidase antibodies. When I take Plaquenil, the bloating goes away, but otherwise I'm quite bloated. I'm still losing weight when not blaoted, but I'm also dieting. I lost about 10 pounds in 5 weeks. I probably am not dieting enough to lose 2/lbs a week. Does the 0 units of antiperoxidase antibodies mean I probably don't have Hashimoto's but something else? I just moved and still need to see an endocrinologist, but it will probably take months to get an appointment.

Thank you.

Hi, you would probably get more replies if you posted your actual results, with the ranges. For anybody to say anything without seeing them, To say anything without seeing them, would just be guess work.

But, both sets of antibodies don't have to be high for you to have Hashi's. :)
