Hello, can someone tell me what my results mean from an antibody perspective please? What’s the difference between the Peroxidase and Thyroglobulin?
These results come after stopping thyroxine, this is the timeline:
*2012 - after first successful pregnancy, developed lots of symptoms, never tested but remained unwell
*2014 - after second successful pregnancy, diagnosed with hyperthyroid and started on carbimazole for around one month, which sent me hypothyroid and started on Levothyroxine for around 5 years
*Felt awful the entire time on thyroxine, all normal thyroid results from endocrinologist - had 3 late miscarriages in 2016, 2018, 2020 - no explanation found for them
*Stopped thyroxine in Sept 2019, after a few months thyroid results were back to normal range (became more hyper during pregnancy in 2020, but not out of range) but peroxidase antibodies raised a bit
*Then tested in March 2021 and was hyperthyroid, but only just out of range.
*Now just done test and results attached show both antibodies raised and tsh now hypothyroid.
I don’t understand why it’s swinging between hyper and hypo and know that docs will want me to go back on thyroxine, but am not comfortable with this seeing as i was so ill for 5 years on it, and anyway, after being off it for 18 months I still got a hyper result?!
Thank you for any help, this is so hard to navigate.
And my vitamin levels are also down, but I eat well, and they never seem to increase much at all!
