Finally saw the endocrinologist
Anti-Tg: 41.14 (less than 4.11)
Anti-TPO: greater than 1000 (less than 5.61)
FT3: 3.22 (2.57-4.43)
FT4: 1.17 (0.64-1.77)
TSH: 4.24 (0.27-4.2)

The doc says that despite having the antibodies, I am borderline and no need to treat yet.  75% of people with antibodies never require treatment.  So I guess that is good news.

The question about treating should be based on symptoms, not just on blood test results compared to reference ranges that are far too broad to be functional.  Patients with thyroid antibodies that exceed their ranges, like yours, and with symptoms, should always be treated.  If your doctor really believes that 75% of patients with Hashi's never require treatment, then you need to find a good thyroid doctor

Please tell us about symptoms if you have any.
