Low total wbc but normal neutrophils and lymphocytes, have hashimotos. No known infections, tested for everything. Any Possible causes?
24 year old lady with concern about lymphocytopenia.
There are both congenital and acquired conditions that can cause low white blood cells (lymphocytopenia). Either the body is not making enough, they are making them and they get destroyed or stuck in the spleen, lymph nodes as they circulate. There are infections, drugs and malignancies that can cause or no apparent reason. Please get full exam. ...Read more

Probably Not: The number of each kind of WBC you have is in constant flux and changes depending on many different things. There is likely nothing pathological about your numbers and will likely be normal upon recheck. ...Read more
I've Hashimoto's thyroiditis and low lymphocytes for 2 years. My levels are very stable and I've never had a goiter. How can I increase lymphocytes?
Low lymphocytes may: Not be related to Hashimoto's, and may not need any treatment. If the lymphocytes are less than 1000/mcL then you may want to check T and B cell subsets. HIV should be checked if the CD4 T-cell count is very low. If not, and there are no recurrent infections, there is no need for treatment. Vitamin stores are full of supplements which claim to boost the immune system, but are mostly bogus. ...Read more

Can hashimotos cause a positive ana? My tpo is high right now and I have a positive ana. When I was diagnosed I also had high tpo but was ANA negative
Yes: Positive ANA isn't unusual with hashimoto's and usually doesn't mean there is another disease process happening such as lupus. However, one autoimmune condition does increase the risk for another. If you have symptoms that don't improve with treatment of your thyroid condition discuss them with your doctor for further work up. ...Read more
I have hashimotos and am 3 months post partum. My recent bloodwork was 70.05 for TSH. That seems really high. What would cause that?
Diagnosed w/Hashimoto's 20 years ago, had a TT 2 years ago. My TSH levels jumping from the very low range to being too high. What might cause this?
Under active thyroid: Has humorous can start with an over active thyroid but ultimately it damages the thyroid gland. A high TSH means your Thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroid hormone and your body is "kicking it" to make it work harder. If the level is very high you will probably need thyroid hormone pills. ...Read more
No: Hashimotos will not directly lower your B12 level or elevate your white count. ...Read more
What would cause my tsh to get high after years of being same level on synthroid? Hashimotos for 25 years fasting sugar up a bit too. Worry it's cance
C3 196 which is high. C4 is 33.7. Ana +1:320. Any autoimmune can cause C3 to be high? Rheumy is testing for hashimoto's thyroiditis. Could this be?
I have hypothyroidism, hashimotos. My recent bloodwork shows I have low iron, high uibc and tibc and heavy periods. What could be the cause?
Heavy periods: Hashimoto is an autoimmune inflammatory process in thyroid gland. It is separate problem to the low iron. If you have low ferritin and high tibc- that means you have iron deficiency. This iron deficiency is likely due to /related to your heavy period. You should take some iron replacement. Heavy periods can be related to your hypothyroidism. See you md and d/w your md more detail. ...Read more
I have high copper and liver enzymes. I'm on the pill, and have hashimoto's disease. What could cause my copper levels and liver enzymes to be high?
Lab results as follows: ANA w/titre and pattern 1:320 and thyroid peroxidase ab 484.0....Are the two related? Would hashimoto's cause high ANA level?
Cholesterol high, LDL high, HDL high, ALT high, AST high could the cause be my TSH being high from Hashimoto's?
Definitely: Hypothyroidism will cause all of these metabolic problems. It commonly causes HyperCholesterolemia, and will cause your liver enzymes to elevate because of fat accumulating in the liver cells, called NASH (Non-Alcoholic SteatoHepatitis). NASH rarely actually leads to hepatic problems/failure- only has that potential if the metabolic impairment isn't fixed. The high LDL Cholesterol can hurt badly! ...Read more
Can stress alone cause hashimoto hypothyroidism? Would periods of high stress cause higher TSH levels even while on levothyroxine?
No: Should see endocrinologist to run s thyroid test ...Read more
How significant would a TSI antibody level of 70 w/ range of 149 be viewed? I already have Hashimotos w/extremely high TPO/TgAb
Not useful by itself: Thyroid antibodies such as TPO and TgAb do not tell you that you need treatment but that your risk of developing autoimmune hypothyroidism somewhere down the road is increased. TSI stands for thyroid-stimulating immunoglobulin and is typically only ordered if the T4 or free T4 are high and the TSH is very low (, 0.1). In that situation a + TSI suggests Graves' disease. Do your tests show that? ...Read more
I have hashimotos and wondering if there is any thing that I can do to lower my antibodies. They are very high?
Out of your control: The antibodies assist with the diagnosis. Once made, ignore them. Stay physically fit. Eat sensibly. Monitor how you feel and comply with your Meds and follow-up. In the past, Hashoto's was deadly. Be glad for today's management. Read up on your illness. Stay proactive. Best wishes. ...Read more
How do I manage Hashimotos adequately if I cannot take medicine yet? My antibody count isn't high enough to warrent it.
Endocrinologist: Treatment of Hashimotos is determined by thyroid function tests, mainly TSH, not by the antibody levels. You may have Hashimotos but still have enough thyroid tissue to have normal levels of thyroid hormone. There is no treatment for antibodies per se. Consult an endocrinologist for management of the disorder. ...Read more
I have symptoms of hashimotos disease but blood test showed normal levels. I've hade high levels before. What other test should be done?
Thyroid antibodie: Check thyroid antibodies (especially thyroid peroxidase antibodies). If this is positive, then you have autoimmune thyroid disease and should be treated adequately. If it is negative, then I would open up the work up and look at other causes for your complaints. ...Read more
Have high ige (no symptoms) but have hashimotos whih is an autoimmune dise. What help can I seek from an immonologist to address the autoimmune condit?
IgE: Not everyone with elevated ige has obvious allergic symptoms but they may appear later. Hashimotos is a seperate type of autoimmunity not related to the ige or allergies. It has a genetic basis and can be involved with other autoimmune disorders. Njust keep in touch with your primary doc. An immunologist will not help any better. ...Read more
Can you have hashimotos but th1 th2 immunity is balanced? My tpo is high but immunity test shows normal
Hashimoto's: You can certainly have the antibodies which would suggest an antibody-mediated thyroid disease, but that disease may not be manifesting itself. Yet. If the antibodies are there, the condition may very well be on the horizon. The thyroid function tests will be the ones to tell you that it's time to treat. ...Read more
Autoimmune: With hashimoto's, the body makes antibodies that attack the thyroid. It tends to run in families and can be triggered by anything that can weaken the immune system such as poor nutrition especially vitamin d deficiency. It is common in celiac disease and gluten has been suggested as a trigger for hashimoto's in some people. Good sleep hygiene and exercise strengthen the immune system. ...Read more

Can hashimotos suddenly get worse? I take levothyroxine but my antibodies have sky rocketed upward. Cause?
Viral infection: A theory is that hashimoto's is triggered by exposure to a virus that causes a reaction in the body wherein the cross reaction to your own thyroid. If this this theory is correct, then all you would need is exposure to a similar virus. There are literally uncountable numbers of viruses that are being formed all the time. ...Read more
What diseases could cause a young woman with Hashimotos to have gastroparesis and POTS and POTS symptoms worsen with Synthroid.
Since sjogrens can damage the thyroid would tpo be produced because of sjogrens and cause hashimotos, or is hashi always a separate disease?
Separate diseases: There is a significant co-existence of these two diseases but they are separate diseases. Both are auytoimmune in nature but the presence of sjogren's disease does not cause the development of thyroid antibodies nor the development of hashimoto's. ...Read more
Can hashimotos cause your immune system to not fight other infections thru out the body as well as it does for someone who doesn't have hashimotos?
No: No evidence that people with hashimoto is more prone to infections. ...Read more
Does it make sense to have all normal thyroid levels but still have high antibodies (hashimotos) 137? I'm confused
Yes, it is a process: Autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto's) is a process where your immune system is attacking your thyroid. At first your thyroid can get stimulated and you produce too much thyroid hormone (T4), then it can balance out and your T4 is normal. Towards the end your immune system destroys enough of your thyroid gland and your T4 levels begin to drop below normal until you don't produce any. Normal is good ...Read more
Hashimotos, thyroid function stable while off Medes past 12 months, antibodies really high, still get symptoms and swelling of thyroid?
That's not uncommon: Hi. Hashimoto's defined by thyroid autoantibodies, with or without a goiter, and normal thyroid function is fairly commonly seen (when it's looked for, that is). The degree of elevation of autoantibodies does not imply how soon thyroid function will begin to be lost. I recommend just follow your thyroid function periodically and anytime new symptoms arise. Good luck! ...Read more
Can I have high TPO >400 but not have hashimotos? I have all the symptoms of it but my tsh is normal as of right now + goiter, Tpo 1300 last week
Hashimotos diagnosis: Is made by a biopsy that shows immune-mediated thyroid destruction. The presence of high TPO>200 is seen in >95% of cases of Hashimoto's. Anyone with high TPO antibody is at high risk for Hashimoto's and should be followed very closely. TSH, FT4 and FT3 levels determine thyroid function and treatment might not be needed if normal, but goiters always need further evaluation. ...Read more
