I've recently had blood test and pleased the T3 level has started to go up. However, I don't understand what makes the antibodies rise. I'm strictly gluten free, all vitamins are optimal including Vitamin D, B12, Folate. Supplementing with selenium, vitamin C, B12, Folate, K2, Vitamin D, Magnesium. When I was first diagnosed they were a lot higher but they are still quite high. I am taking 150mcg Levothyroxine daily.
Latest results - April 18

I am feeling a lot better than I was but can't help thinking that the high antibodies are causing some symptoms.
Any advice would be grateful.
