Probably not thyroid: Looks like your hypothyroidism is being properly treated. The anti-TPO antibodies will stay high for a long time. I don't see how your symptoms are related to the thyroid. Suggest discussing this with your doctor.

No: But you are correct to determine the cause of the hypothyroidism. Talk to a thyroidologist.
