My thyroid tests came back and many doctors in my area do not know how to treat this. Here are my recent test results: Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) AB >1000 (3years now), Antithyroglobulin AB 750, Thyroid Stimulating Immunoglo 195. I want to get this under control. I have seen three endocrynologists and they are at a loss on how to treat this other than synthroid, which I have been on for 3 years and has done nothing to improve my numbers. Any advice would be helpful.
I don't know of any other treatment other than synthroid, but that doesn't mean there's not one. I am a "never say die kind of person", so even though you've seen three endocrinologist, doesn't mean you can't keep looking. There is lots of research material and doctors out there that focus on research and treatments of our condition. Good Luck!!!
I'm just curious are you concerned about these antibodies for fertility reasons? I'm going through a situation where the antibodies showed up during testing for infertility reasons. I went to the Endo and they diagnosed me with Hashimoto's even though my TSH was 2.5. They put me on Synthroid to get my levels down because that has shown to help some when trying to get pregnant and with miscarraige risks. Otherwise my old Reproductive Endo. had put me on steriods during my last IVF cycle to try to lower the antithyroglobulin ab but I did not get prego, and a couple of weeks after the cycle my ab numbers were still high. Please let me know the reason you are questioning this, I'm just curious. Thanks and Good Luck!
