Re: Anti TG and Anti TPO

Do you have the refrence range for these? Your TPO Ab is high any case. That would mean Hashimoto's thyroiditis which is the most common cause for hypothyroidism. Are you on thyroid medication already or are you still investigating?

Thumbs up Re: Anti TG and Anti TPO

Hi FinnMaid,
Thank you for your reply. Those are my sisters results she is 26 she just picked up her results and she is a bit worry because she never had any symptoms or problems with thyroid. The only thing I've got is the minimum range for Tg which is 4.11 IU/ml and TPO 5.6 IU/ml. I am worry as well specially that she lives overseas and she is always to busy to visit a doctor. If that is Hashimoto then how you deal with that? Medication or surgery? How serious is it? Can it be cancer? Thank you once again

Re: Anti TG and Anti TPO

It is actually a common disorder, and it can be treated with meds, but only if the T4&T3 are low. She isn't experiencing any symptoms so that's good. Many ppl with hashi don't even take meds b/c they just have the antibodies.

Re: Anti TG and Anti TPO

The medication is for HypoT (Hashi's is the cause, HypoT the result) and it's not really medication but hormone supplementation. One can live a normal life with meds - just make sure the med is adjusted correctly. She needs to keep an eye on her thyroid levels (TSH, FT4 and FT3). She will most likely go HypoT at some point with that high Abs.
