I was diagnosed with Hashimotos thyroiditis in early May after going in with many symptoms, and after lab tests I got pretty extreme test results- so much so that my DR said he hadn't seen numbers like mine and 'didn't know how I was functioning'. (TSH 143, Free T3 1.55, T4 1.7 and TPO greater than 600)
I have since been taking Nature Throid, Iodine, Vitamin D and a few other things and just had my follow up blood work done, about 2 months post initial diagnosis. Dr told me that all my levels have normalized EXCEPT for my TPO, which they did an exact number on this time, and it's 2190!
Dr who is treating me is not an Endocrinologist, but he is putting in a call to an Endocrinologist to see why my TPO levels could still be so extremely elevated, even after the rest of my number has normalized, but I won't hear back right away, and I just wondered if anyone else has experienced these kind of results?
