Re: high thyroid peroxidase

Can I be loosing my hair even before the TSH is affected. This whole thing started because I am loosing my hair (diffuse shedding), not only on my scalp but my arms and legs . These are the numbers. I am 24 and female, reletively small, if any of this factors into anything.

TSH 1.81 (.35-5.5, normal)
Thyroid Peroxidase 230 (0-35 normal)
Thyroid Binding Globulin 19
ANA- positive

Any thoughts on these lab numbers would help! Like I said I am having hairloss (hypo), but weight loss as well (hyper). No doc cares so this will be me figuring it out. What do people think?
