As some of you remember I’ve been trying to get an official diagnosis of Autoimmune hypothyroidism (Hashimoto) as the Gp only wrote subclinal hypo so far.
My problem is that I’ve done blue Horizon test and I was positive for TG antibodies but negative for TPO.
But when the NHS tested the same antibodies about 1-2 weeks later they were both negative. And now the GPs I have been seeing at my new practice are sort of backing down slightly from the Hypo situation as they keep mentioning my antibodies are negative when they tested last in September and by TSH is barely high (4.9-5.63 and the blood test higher range is 4.4)
Can antibodies fluctuate that much this quickly?
If yes, is there any evidence you can link me with to that I can show the GP?
I was thinking of ordering a new full test but honestly I can’t afford it right as finances are very tight for the next few months at least.
I’ve been waiting for the Thyroid scan but hospital has re-arranged it a few times 😭.
And St Bart’s have refused referral for Endo because they’re full and they sent me elsewhere which also refused and said to refer to my normal Endo that I use for my Type 1 Diabetes 😭😭😭😭
I’m on Teva 50mcg which has done honestly nothing for me and I asked for a small increase to 75mcg as I’m still feeling exhausted and have all the symptoms after taking Levo for over 4wks (I know it takes 6-8wks but I know effects usually can be felt sooner)…
but GP refused and asked blood test first and to ask my Endo 😭 - fine but need to wait another month or two while I feel fully crap!
Can you post your thoughts/opinions on this? Would really appreciate it! 🙂
