Hi, I was diagnosed only yesterday and took my first pill today. I have been quite worried to hear about people's experiences levo, but more importantly I'm worried about the anti-body attacks!
I don't have many symptoms except feeling the cold - that's the main one.
But my results were really bad: TSH 79.9, T4 6.8, AntTPO 4777.7!!!
My question is, while the thyroxine will regulate my hormone, what do people do about the anti-body attack??? I'm getting a coeliac test done, although have previously come out negative.
What do people think? I've read about functional medicine practice is to heal the gut and cut out grains, which I will certainly try. Just wondered because no one seems to be questioning this and it's the anti-bodies causing the destruction!!
Do antibody levels decrease on Levo? What do you do about this? Anyone else gluten free?
