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

Yep. I agree with that.
I mentioned the antibodies in one of my earlier replies to you.
Positive results on either or both the Ab tests can help win a diagnosis from some MDs.
(Negative results don't disprove the diagnosis, though. There is a false-negative rate of about 20%, but the tests are definitely worth doing.)
