Hashimoto's?

Here are my lab results--Anybody have any idea if this indicates Hashimoto's?

T4-Free 1.05
DHEA-Sulfate 315.3
TSH 1.590
Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) AB 61
Antithyroglobulin AB <20
T3-Free 2.6

My Cholesteral is also ridiculously high, which really doesn't make sense because I eat very healthy!
Cholesterol, Total 176
Triflycerides 237
HDL 37
VLDL 47
LDL 92

Also, I am always tired (even after 8-10 hours of sleep), get cold very easily, have a really hard time losing weight, often times I feel bloated & have indigestion, have a low sex drive, tend to be moody, amongst other symptoms!

What are the ranges on your FT3, FT4 and TPOab?  Ranges vary lab to lab, so you have to report them with results.

The elevated TPOab does indicate Hashimoto's, though slightly elevated levels can be present with other autoimmune diseases, as well.

Your Free T3 and Free T4 levels indicate that you might be hypo, which is really what causes the symptoms, not the Antibodies. Your high triglyceride levels are also consistent with hypo.

Is your doctor willing to start you on a low dose of hormone replacement?

Please verify the reference range for the DHEA; should the upper end of the range be 400, rather than 40?
