Thyroid Hashimoto Syndrome High Antibody Count
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
By definition : By definition someone who has anti-thyroid antibodies carries a diagnosis of hashimoto's thyroiditis. That doesn't mean that thyroid function is always affected. However, in patients with high anti-thyroid antibodies we monitor thyroid function with blood work as the risk for developing thyroid dysfunction is higher. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have hashimotos and i just got my bloodwork .Thyroglobulin is way high and I have no antibodies. Is this a sign i might have thyroid cancer?

I have hashimotos, on armour thyroid, tsh, ft3, ft4 is normal but antibodies are high. I have lots of symptoms. How can I get my antibodies down?
Do not treat antibod: Hashimoto's is an autoimmune disorder of the thyroid. Although many people have hypothyroidism, they can have normal thyroid function initially, as you do. Your symptoms are not likely to be related to your thyroid. High thyroid antibodies are simply an indicator of having autoimmune thyroid disease, it has nothing to do with the course of the disorder. Trying to treat the antibodies will not help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
