Help Please! Anyone have Graves and Hashi's????

Hi everyone. The endo today told me I am complicated becuase I have Graves and Hashi's thyroiditis. I am not sure what this means but I have hyper / Graves symptoms. Anyone else have this and should I just nuke the sucker and get rid of the recurrances of both?

Thanks!

Suz

Re: Help Please! Anyone have Graves and Hashi's????

May I ask how you KNOW you have both? I ask because I've been diagnosed with hashi by FNA, but have more Grave's-like symptoms, and a TSI at 119. I feel I'm on the verge of a Grave's diagnosis, but they don't consider anything when I point out a 119 TSI-apparently they'll only look at Grave's if my TSI goes over 130. Do you have lab values that support both?? If you do, my gosh, I guess they would treat it like a flat-out Grave's case, because there would be no way to treat the hashi with meds.

Re: Help Please! Anyone have Graves and Hashi's????

I have anti thryroglobulin antibodies of 285 (normal less than 40) and micromonisomal antibodies (not sure if I spelled that right) which is Hashi's. The main thing is my symptoms are Graves but labs are "within normal range" but on the lower end or higher end of each test. (TSH .389 normal .3 - 5.50 etc.). I also have a TSI of 115 and was diagnosed with Graves in 2005. Hope this helps??? Suz
