Hi All!! So I was diagnosed with hypothyroid about 7 yrs ago. Well the last few months I will like I was having a lot of symptoms again... anxiety, weight gain, fatigue, dry hair/loss, diarrhea and just not feeling that great. So my doctor ordered blood test.

TSH-1.07 normal
T4 - 0.96 (0.58-1.64) normal
T3- 3.31 (2.5-3.9) normal
TPO - 419( <9) very high
ANA-Positive

Dr. says all is good. Could it be possible I was just having a flare???

I have Hashi's and celiac disease. The symptoms for both can be identical. There is a strong link between the two. I would consider getting a celiac blood test since your thyroid panel seems to be fine. My celiac disease was caught some 15 years after my Hashi's. Anemia was my main symptom, but celiacs are symptom free! I was not wasting away either in terms of weight.

Once you develop an autoimmune disorder, you can develop more!
