With only a few weeks under my belt of this new illness I'm realising what a minefield I am in!Doctor today say I do not have Hashi's and they will do nothing but annual monitoring....this goes against everything I'm reading and learning. Should I be pushing the doctors to do more? / Is it Hashimoto's? / What's next?!
Please see my latest post below.....Hello - I wrote recently after discovering my TSH was 4.23 - at the top end of 'normal'. I had a new set of tests done after 8 weeks and I've just had the Anti-thyroid peroxidase results back and I'm 156 - well over the <34 level, (interestingly my TSH was 3.7 on the later test). I don't get to talk with my doctor till tomorrow evening, but putting it all together (and with the knowledge that I am a Type 1 diabetic), I'm thinking it looks like Hashimoto's.
Your thoughts on this would be appreciated.
