Do i need treatment if my TSH 7.69 high normal free T4 and free T3 and elevated thyroid antibodies?
Yes: Tsh 7.69 with high tpo is not "high normal" but high and indicates hypothyroidism. Having high tpo indicates autoimmune or hashimoto's thyroiditis. I suggest adding selenium zinc b complex and vitamin c and iodine and avoiding gluten for a month and rechecking levels in a month. If no change then you might need thyroid supplementation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My TSH levels are 4.67.I am on 25mcg levothyroxin.Doc said its hashimoto's.Should I ask to check my thyroid antibodies too?or the treatment is same?

My thyroid antibodies test came back as 10.6 (should be less than 1.8) I have been diagnosed with Graves. Should l be concerned about my results?
Thyroid antibodies: You do not say which antibodies are positive. TPO antibodies are found in either Graves or Hashimotos. TSI is part of Graves. Either way, antibodies don't impact the treatment plan. If you are hyperthyroid (elevated FT4) then you need treatment, typically medications, radioactive iodine, or surgery. Talk to your Endocrinologist about the options. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have hashimoto's (hypothyroid and tested positive for thyroid antibodies ).I take eltroxin but still had two misscariages .How can I prevent it ?
Stay positive: Miscarriages are more common than many realize. It is discouraging to have had 2 but it still may simply be bad luck. Meanwhile, make sure your thyroid levels are in the normal range. Ideally your TSH should be less than 2 and it does not respond quickly to treatment. It is the thyroid level and not the antibodies that affect your fertility. Then get checked further if you continue to miscarry. ...Read more
