Re: Can you relate? Any experts on results? What to do next?
You tested positive for both of the antibodies (peroxidase and thyroglobulin) that cause Hashimoto's disease, which is the leading cause of hypothyroidism. Since you have plenty of the symptoms, plus the antibodies, it's safe to assume that your actual thyroid hormone (free T4) level is too low for your needs. If your free T3 had been measured, it's quite possible that it's low in its range, which would help to account for all those symptoms.
The endo who diagnosed me would treat you for hypoT based on your labs plus symptoms, but she's more progressive than the 'standard' endo. I don't necessarily recommend you try the endo route, because they're too often a waste of time; but you should consult other MDs in order to find treatment now and not be made to wait until your gland has totally failed.
To find a good thyroid MD, you may want to ask local pharmacists for names of MDs who prescribe Cytomel or Armour. Those MDs are usually thyroid knowledgeable and more willing to treat folks like you with so-called "normal" labs.
Good luck. I hope you find treatment soon!
