I recently went for a routine check and my doctor ordered some blood tests because I was complaining of dizziness. Results of thyroid were as follows: S-TSH 0.67 ref 0.35-4.94, S-FT4 14.3 ref 9-19.0, anti TPO antibody normal but anti TG antibody 28.79 ref 0.31-4.11 which is high. Can someone please explain what these results all mean.I am 27 years old, on birth control pill, have not picked up or lost weight, no problem with sleeping, sometimes I get heart palpitations, no problem with heat. Usually hands are cold.
You need to be retested in 6 mos again to keep track, and make sure that the antibodies aren't affecting your thyroid. I would ask for a referral to a thyroid specialist who understands thyroid autoimmune diseases.
