I recently had a thyroid panel completed. My test results came back negative for thyroid autoimmunity, but I still had some antibodies. My anti- TPO and anti-tg were about 25% of the reference range. My other results were in the reference ranges. I go to a naturopathic doctor and she felt that these antibodies were a little higher than she would have liked.
So, my question is, is having slightly elevated thyroid antibodies normal? I DO have a lot of hypothyroid symptoms. Constant fatigue, body aches, difficulty with simple exercise, and I have this sort of odd, fairly constant dry ache toward the front of my throat. I have also been digagnosed with bipolar disorder. It's fairly common for people with bipolar disorder to also have thyroid issues.
