Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to help me with the results from my latest lab test. I am a bit new to this.
Have been diagnosed since Jan, but knew I have had hypothyroidism for 2 years.
I am gluten free.
I was assuming since I had v high Thyroid Perox Antibodies, that I had hashimotos
Now in my last test my Dr tested Thyroid Receptor AB. And I am not sure what to make of them and what they mean
I have had no access to vit D, Folate, Ferritin or any other tests and doing them privately is too expensive atm.
Here are the results from the last test (Dr didn't test FT 3:
TSH 4.68 mU/L (0.35-5.00)
Free T4 12.6 pmol/L (9.0-21.0)
Thyroid Perox. AB 761 (<6)
Thyroid Receptor AB 1.7 U/L (0.0-1.9)
My TSH was 12 with same range 8 months ago and halfed from just going gluten free.
I started levo in Jan on 50 and my Dr wants me to increase to 75.
Can anybody tell me what the Receptor AB mean?
Thanks very much!
