For those of you who've been referred to an Endo' in the UK and know you have raised antibodies, please could you let me know what your Endo' has said, and have they changed your treatment or scanned your thyroid? I know nearly all hypothyroidism is due to these and most of us have Hashimoto's but it seems to me that the autoimmune disease side of things are just ignored, in the NHS at least, and few people (like me) only have an annual blood test and rarely see the GP and never get referred to a consultant (unless it Graves disease)
Mine are going up (although I've recently started taking selenium, D3 and going gluten free as advised by the knowledgeable posters on here, in an effort to reduce them)
Has your Endo acknowledged that having these raised antibodies can in itself make you feel ill?
I'm trying to decide whether to present my Medichecks report to my GP and ask for a referral and/or scan, but thinking it's probably a waste of time and effort if there's nothing that can be done/changed.
Thanks again for everyones help, this site is so valuable, for moral support and practical advice
