Sorry to post again so quick after but I forgot to ask and if I have asked this before I can't remember brain fog seems to be coming back, does PA affect your thyroid and the results because it seems every since I've been diagnosed with PA my tsh seems to be on a rollercoaster ride from high to low, low to high, high to low and now back to high up to 52.

Any answers?

I have PA but it doesn't appear to have an affect on my thyroid gland. Maybe you have hashimotos as, I believe, your thyroid hormone output can vary quite a lot.

Did the doctor do an antibody test for you?


No what's that and what level should it be to be ok?

Its a blood test for antibodies and I don't about levels but this is an excerpt from and although the first few paras may be a bit complicated, this excerpt plus the following paras may be a bit simpler.

Ask your GP if he has done antiobidy testing and if not ask him to do it.


Although this may all sound logical and clear, life being what it is means that both the thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin antibodies and the antithyroid peroxidase antibodies may both be present in an autoimmune (Hashimoto's) thyroiditis and in Graves' disease in some degree at least.
