Re: whats considered a therapeutic dose?
She doesn't know if she has Hashi's or not. If she was ever tested for antibodies, she wouldn't have known enough to ask for results. I suspect she never was, though. But it doesn't matter. The treatment for hypoT is the same no matter what the cause. "Hashi's hypo" feels no different than congenital hypoT, surgical hypoT, or goitrogen-diet hypoT. My own holistic MD doesn't even run antibodies tests for suspected hypoT. He considers them irrelevant, because having ABs doesn't change the way the disease is treated.
