Hi all!! I just got done with a nice Sunday dinner (chicken and cran and the works) and sat down and let my mind wander. It wandered to the question of antibodies and questionable normal thyroid levels. What happens to a person if they have elevated antibodies with supposedly normal TSH, FT4, & FT3 and they won't treat it right now?
They told me "Well, your body is attacking your thyroid and you will have to have treatment in the future". Thank you so much, folks--like I'm having symptoms NOW??!
Do these people really make you wait until you are just about bed-ridden? I know that Midwest (Hi Midwest!) said that you don't have to wait to be treated, but I keep projecting into the future (bad habit) that I'll be pursuing maybe another 12 doctors looking for treatment while I keep gaining and looking like Mrs. Clean or Telly Savalas or even Uncle Fester with no eyebrows either!!
Has anyone else been diagnosed with just antibody problems and had trouble getting the doctors to agree?
Let me know as these so called professionals make you feel like you are SO ALONE!!!!! Thanks!
