When my antibodies were checked 2 yrs. ago, my TPO were in normal range and Anti Thyg were just 35 but I had hashi's. The doctor could tell just by feeling of the texture of my thyroid gland and also FNB confirmed it. I haven't had antibodies checked any more. Have been told that they usually don't check them again and you don't even have to have any antibodies to have hashi's.
My question is................are symptoms related directly to how high your antibody count is? In other words, could I have just as many symptoms as the person whose count was 2500? If blood levels of hormone were normal could I still have bad symptoms with low antibody count?
Whoops! I mean I believe there is a correlation between how sick a person is and how high the antibody titres. I am sure that somejone with no Abs may feel sicker than someone with Abs, but as a general rule, I believe the Antibodies worsen symptoms.
