You do not need to see an ENDOCRINOLOGIST, you need to see a competent doctor or nurse who understands thyroid disease and Hashimoto's. That endocrinologist that you saw does not appear to be one. IF he was, he would have understood that to diagnose and treat Hashimoto's, a complete thyroid panel must be tested, not just TSH. Hashimoto's is much different than someone who is just hypo, since you are also dealing with the cause of the disease, autoimmune attack on the thyroid. It is not treated based on TSH or TPO. It is prescribed based on a combination of your symptoms, levels of FT4 and FT3, and TSH. That endocrinologist should have know this and not just increased your medication without knowing if you also need T3 supplementation, not just T4. But then again, most endocrinologists only prescribe T4 and ignore the need for T3.
Thank you for posting your test results. The laboratory range is needed to be able to interpret what your numbers mean.
In my humble opinion and my previous bad experiences with multiple endocrinologists which were similar to yours, I would not go back to that doctor. I would not waist my time or health, but this is just me. So far he's proven that he doesn't know how to properly diagnose or prescribe thyroid medication. There are nurses, primary care physician's, some medical doctors, naturopaths, functional or integrative medicine doctors who can help you. You just need to find the right one.
Your GI symptoms sound like they could be Celiac's. A blood test result saying "highly unlikely" means there is a chance of Celiac's. An endoscopic biopsy is needed to confirm whether you have Celiac's or you don't.
Autoimmune diet is recommended for Hashimoto's. This is free of gluten, dairy and soy.
