Can anyone say if it is normal to have any thyroid antibodies at all? I have done a private test and although mine still fall in the acceptable range, they are nevertheless present. I am taking this to mean that Hashimotos is likely to be present even if not established
THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODY 19.300 IU/mL 0.00 - 115.00
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES 22.9 IU/mL 0.00 - 34.00.
I have other results that I checked with Thyroid UK guidelines and all seem on the very low side. I have CFS/ME. I am thinking regular monitoring as there is certainly something going on as free t3 is under the Thyroid UK guidelines.
