I saw a doctor this morning and got the results of my Thyroid antibodies test. My TPO is 34. (Previously only other test results were T4 11.8, TSH 8.89) The doctor said TPO was within limits. And while she did mention the magic figure of 10 for TSH she was willing to start me on medication. I wanted to ask a few more questions here first.
The only symptoms I have are feeling the cold, and tiredness. Do I need to bother about have TgAb test done? Should I start medication and then see what the results are when next tested before worrying about things like Ferritin, B12, vitamin D etc? (I do currently take vitamin B compound as I'm vegetarian plus Selenium and Zinc - I read those last two help to support the thyroid).
