Please can someone advise me on what to do. I've just getting a print out from GP

 My TSH level is nice and low.

It says a thyroid peroxidase antibody result 34 indicates that autoimmune disease is likely to develop and thyroid test should be monitored. Mine is 39.8

IM due to change hospitals for my 2nd round of IVF. My last until didn't do the TPO test.

Should I tell my GP I want to be referred to an endocrinologist or ask for more blood tests. I didn't have a t4 or t3 test. Sorry I don't understand what those are. I just had TSH AND TPO.

How would I proceed with this.


Thanks ladies xx

    have a look in faq under thyroid.... and maybe start on selenium 200mcg per day and omega 3 fish body oil 1-5g per day.  A gluten free diet seems to help in some cases.... and you may want to talk to your clinic about taking steroids plus blood thinners with your next Tx.

    Hiya and thanks for your help.

    Went back to my GP and got the nurse to take blood for t4 t3 and a few other things but the hospital refused to test t4 because they said my tsh level was within range (low)

    I'm sure I've read that just because your tsh is low and your tpo is high doesn't mean something is not wrong. That's their attitude. I guess I'm going to have to make some calls. I'm sick of fighting to get help when I have problems or feel unwell.

    Hi
    If someone is having donor egg treatment could they still experience immune issues?

    Hi all,

    What is the general consensus on the whopping cough vaccination, when you have immunity issues? Is it safe?

    Or you could just go to your GP and request that the nurse take blood tests for what you need.

    If there is a problem with that ring your local primary care trust and ask them will they fund it.

    I just went to my GP and said the hospital wants me to have these tests done and I didn't pay.

    Try it you might get somewhere.

    Good luck xx
