Thryoid tests and high antibodies (really high)

Hi there again,
I just got back from the doc and received my new results, can anyone make heads or tails?? i am being referred to seattle university for further treatment. I have also already be diagnosed with Hashimoto's.

FT116.4, T3 uptake 30.8, Total T4 6.2, TSH 6.94 (2.76 a year ago), T3 158, Free T4 .9, Free T3 2.8, Thyroglobulin auto AB >90.0 (yes that is greater than 90, not a typo-up from 6.1 last year), Thyroid Peroxidase auto AB 51.6 (up from 29.8)

Yes, I know the antibody levels are way up there. Any thoughts from anyone??

Jillian

Hi FaireLadieJillian,
Your TSH has risen, seeming to indicate that you have not been adequately treated with a high enough dose of thyroid.

Others will want to see your lab's ranges for normal on each test.
