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
I'm only a teenager and I have hashimotos thyroid disease. My big concern is that im loosing a lot of hair.
Lost a patch of hair than found out I have hashimotos thyroid problems. Will the hair grow back? It's been 6 years and will I loose more hair?
Possibly: Thyroid level changes, either going up or down are associated with temporary hair loss. A chronically low level causes chronic hair loss. Autoimmune disorders, such as hashimotos can be associated with a chronic diffuse hair loss. Alopecia areata is a seperate but associated autoimmune disorder in which one loses patches of hair resulting in bald spots. This can be treated. ...Read more

Slow fetal heart rate and growth and hashimoto's thyroid. Any correlation? I am 7.5 weeks and measure 6.5 weeks. Today's heart rate was 72.
Thyroid disease: If your TSH is normal and you are taking your thyroid meds as directed it shouldn't have an effect on the fetal heart rate. Unfortunately we do sometimes see a slow heart rate before an embryonic demise. You probably need a short term follow up ultrasound to recheck. At 45 your risk of miscarriage and fetal chromosome issues is much higher. ...Read more

Is it possible for 25 mcg of levothyroxine to normalize my hypo thyroid (hashimoto) right away or is it possible that it normalized itself?
Depends on the TSH:
Your dose of levothyroxine is tiny, just about the lowest. When you have low thyroid function your TSH is high, above 4. Taking the
levo lowers it to normal by adding more thyroid hormone to your blood. So if your TSH is now less than 4, then you are O.K.
On the other hand, if you require only 25 mcg, you probably have a thyroid that is just abouit normal and do not need any thyroid medication. ...Read more

Trying to treat the antibodies will not help. ...Read more
