Make sure the labs indicate a TSI reading. Are you symptomatic?

I am not sure of the exact test, but one included the antibodies, the TSI. I will have to find my test result to let you know for sure what all they did test for. yes, I do have some of the symptoms such as anxiety, night sweets, dizziness, blured vision, weight gain, numbness in the hands.

Sounds all to familiar.  Before I was diagnosed with Graves years ago, I went back & forth with bloodwork until they finally did the uptake scan, which confirmed the diagnosis.  I was put on Propylthiouracil and mine quickly went into remission for YEARS, until I became hypo and realized I have antibodies for both Graves and Hashis.  I can't believe they are doing nothing though you are symptomatic.....maybe you need to switch doctors.  Are you seeing an Endocrinologist or a family Dr.?

  I seen a family doctor, he told me that the uptake was positive for Graves and he sent me to a endocrinologist and he said the blood work did not support the results of the uptake and that we should do nothing.
