Hi everyone ,
This is very trivial .i am mostly curious .and also
I am confused .nothing new there for me.
I was diagnosed hypothyroid 8 years ago .and then from further tests told I was hashimotos.
This further diagnosis of hashimotos stemmed from ;
High tpo antibodies -greater than 3000
An ultra sound of thyroid showing giraffe like markings to a shrunken thyroid .
On seeing the consultant she seemed to go out of her way to discuss that hashimotos was not what I had.that It is different than auto immune thyroiditis
She said there had to be protein in the thyroid or white cells or something.
I know the medication is the same so my question is trivial . Although for dietary and exercise protocols to improve my health it could be relevant .
It's just every where I look for information .It seems ultra sound results as above or just abnormally elevated antibodies is hashimotos .
Thank you everyone
