Re: Secondary Hypo, can't stand watch and wait

I'm a newbie here, but from experience...have them check your TPO (ThyroidPeroxidase) Antibodies. That's how I was diagnosed, when all my other levels were "in the RANGE". It shows an autoimmune response of my body attacking my thyroid and it will slowly kill my thyroid. I had/have all the usual symptoms and am just getting started on thyroid meds. I'm currently using Armour and it has done wonders for my metabolism! I'm also taking hormones since my Progesterone and Testosterone were also low. I'm just hoping I'm on the right path! I think I see the light! Best of luck to you. I hope you get a diagnosis soon. We've all been there and just getting a diagnosis is a blessing!
