Advice re results?

Hey

I'd appreciate anyone's knowledge on the following.

I've recently had my thyroid antibodies tested as I miscarried for the fourth time.

Results = antimicrosomal antibodies 1:102400

Before I pay £200 for a consultation with my consultant to discuss these results, would anyone care to share their thoughts?

Cheers in advance!

PS - My TSH is 'normal' at 3.

Thanks

Re: Advice re results?

Thyroid antibodies can cause miscarriage, and your TSH is not "normal" at 3. Healthy people have TSH around 1, no higher than 2.
Find a knowledgeable doctor who will prescribe supplemental thyroid hormone to increase your chances of successful pregnancy.

On your own, you can take an over-the-counter selenium supplement (100-200 mcgs per day) to try and reduce the antibody titer.
