TPO is thyroperoxidase, Tg is thyroglobulin , they are two different antibodies for thyroid.
They are NOT for life. The old school of thought is that they were for life. Thats what we were told time and time again, but its known to be false now..
There are thyroid "geek" Drs, some popular online, who are slowly proving the old theory wrong.
There are other forums where contributing individuals have mentioned that Hashimoto antibodies are not forever.
I have proven this too, fully documented it.
Any and all autoimmune antibodies can elevated from : molecular mimicry - food sensitivities with leaky gut, environmental toxins, general body inflammation, low immune function, chronic infection, even certain identified genes that can make someone predisposed to this.
After 18 years of both elevated antibodies, one of them has now normalized for two years. I controlled or cured lyme disease and went 100% gluten free even though I'm not celiac.. My continuous need to increase meds has also normalized to the same does per repeated lab testing. My 10 year old thyroid nodule also completely dissolved per my last ultra.sound.
Crossing my finger that this continues to improve.
