Is somebody able to tell my what is going on with my thyroid atm? I suffered from post partum thyroiditis 3 months after giving birth with hyper and hypothyroid symptoms and it was quite bad when I got it. Since then my thyroid function levels have normalized according to the blood tests but I still cannot help but feel really tired, sluggish, loss of memory and occasional anxiety and intolerance to heat. Also, I did take some medicine for my hyper symptoms which then dipped my body into hypo but then eventually it went back to normal levels.
I've read that if you have normal tsh levels but test positive on antibodies, you might be suffering from hashimotos. Is that what my results are indicating? About my doctor, she has a wait-and-see approach and wont prescribe meds or anything. She said that some healthy individuals can test positive on antibodies and she therefore thinks its unneccessary to act on it. I am now 16 months post partum and still feeling not like myself.
My original thyroid results were as following (in brackets the reference ranges);
t4 57.2 (10-19)
tsh below 0.03 (0.5-4.0)
t3 18.1 (3.5-6.5)
Antithyroid peroxidase 28 (below 60)
Anti-thyroglobulin 208 (below 60)
6 months ago my thyroid results were:
t4 12.66 (10.00-19.00)
tsh 3.14 (0.50-4.00)
t3 4.58 (3.5-6.5)
Anti-thyroid peroxidase 40 (below 60)
Anti-Thyroglobulin 359 (below 60)
I did my blood tests again last week and currently my thyroid levels are as following;
t4 16.8 (10.0-19.0)
tsh 2.18 (0.5-4.00)
t3 4.9 (3.5-6.5)
Antithyroid peroxidase 118 (below 60)
Anti-Thyroglobulin 409 (below 60)
Why are my antibodies on the rise constantly and are these results ok? Could I be suffering from hashimoto's thyroiditis?
Thank you in advance!
