Basal 35° Hypo Symtoms & Antibodies

Kate_1984 profile image

Hi all

I have posted before......but as my GP is useless I saw a private Endo yesterday......who totally wrote off my thyroglobulin antibodies 385 (0-115) and told me my thyroid is fine.

All my other bloods are in normal ranges.

My basal temperature in the mornings range from 35° - 36°

When i check in the day and evening never goes above 36.

Where do I go from here?

With strong symptoms ruining my life

....and strong family history of hypo.....I'm still struggling to get help as I'm told I'm fine.

High Thyroglobulin antibodies can be due to a number of issues

Have you had vitamin D, B12, folate and ferritin tested. Add results and ranges if you have them

For full Thyroid evaluation you need TSH, FT4, TT4, FT3 plus TPO and TG thyroid antibodies and also very important to test vitamin D, folate, ferritin and B12

Private tests are available. Thousands on here forced to do this as NHS often refuses to test FT3 or antibodies

Medichecks Thyroid plus ultra vitamin or Blue Horizon Thyroid plus eleven are the most popular choice. DIY finger prick test or option to pay extra for private blood draw. Both companies often have money off offers.

All thyroid tests should ideally be done as early as possible in morning and fasting. This gives highest TSH, lowest FT4 and most consistent results. (Patient to patient tip, GP will be unaware)

Was this private endo from the Thyroid UK recommended list of thyroid specialists?

So you need vitamin D tested as next step - £29

Would also suggest trying strictly gluten free diet for 3-6 months

Ideally ask GP for coeliac blood test first
