See your physician: You don't tell us what your thyroid function tests showed. You have autoantibodies - antibodies that our immune system produces against our own thyroid gland. You probably have thyroid disease and see your current physician first. You may have to see an endocrinologist, a physician who specializes in the diseases of the endocrine system.
