Hello folks, just looking for a spot of advice.
Was diagnosed with underactive thyrpid (TSH- 75) June 2016 after a series of tests following recurring miscarriages. Got pregnant after medication evened levels & had healthy baby.
Durning pregnancy I got special monitoring, and in my notes it said 'hypothyroid with significantly raised TPO antibodies' - am I right in thinking this means I have Hashimoto (as in the autoimmune under active thyroid)?
I've asked my dr since but they said it doesn't matter as the medication is the same.
I've been suffering with bloating, joint pain, gastrointestinal pains since having baby, and my cousin who also has hasimoto & coeliac disease that this is a sign of coeliac & I should have been tested when diagnosed with under active thyroid. Should this test have been done automatically? Or do I have to request it?
Any advice or experiences that might help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much!!
