I have Hashimotos and have gone gluten free to see if it makes any difference to my antibody levels but I still don't understand the difference between TPO Ab and TG Ab. Previous results:
TG Ab 589.200 IU/mL Range (0 -115)
TPO Ab 295.7 IU/mL Range (0.00 -34)
TG Ab 590.0 IU/mL Range (0-115)
TPO Ab 61.2 IU/mL Range (0-34)
So my TPO Ab is way down but my TG Ab is still very high.
I have looked everywhere on line to try and find out what this means. I have been told that it is the TPO Ab which is significant (in which case it seems that my going gluten free has helped) but surely the TG Ab level must mean something.
I have been gluten free for 4 months and don't feel any better and neither have I lost any weight. I should add that I don't eat processed food so I don't buy gluten free products unless they are naturally gluten free.
If anyone can explain the difference between these two antibodies and what these results might mean, I would be very grateful. Thanks.
On 125 mcg of Thyroxine my other levels are all within range and have not really changed.
