I'm new to the forum and looking for some advice.
Basically my Nan has Hashimoto's and Hypothyroidism, so does my Mum. My mums sister also has it and her daughter. Is recently started having lots of symptoms, including not being able to lose any weight even though I only drink water and don't like chocolate and sweets. I exercise 3 times per week and also walk my dog daily.
The doctors have not helped recently, they know the family history yet just keep telling me I'm overweight since having a baby 9 months ago. I kept telling them I've got such bad headaches and insomnia recently (my mums main symptoms). I feel sick all day and it feels like a lump in my throats and I can't breath properly.
I decided to go private and these are my results.. I've put ranges in brackets and what the doctor wrote next to each one.
TSH - 32mIU/L (0.27 - 4.3mIU) abnormal
Free T4 - 7.0pmol/L (10-20mIU) abnormal - Low
FT3 - 3.72pmol/L (3.1 - 6.8)
FT4 - 47.1nmol/L (64.5 - 142nmol/L) abnormal - Low
Anti-Thyriodperoxidase antibodies (TPEX) - 73.0kIU/L (0 - 34kIU/L) abnormal - High
Anti-Thyroglobulin antibodies (TGAB) - 688.0kU/L (0 - 115kU/L) abnormal - High
The doctor said indicative of Hypothyroidism and probable Hashimoto's. I'm looking for advice on the results.
Thanks for reading
