Hashimoto Antibodies | How I am working on lowering them 👊
One of the key indicators to be found when someone is diagnose with hypothyroidism is to also test for the TPO antithyroperoxidase autoantibodies and TGAB thyroglobul antibodies.
Having these markers high means that you are going through Hashimoto and that you should start to make changes in your life.
Keep reading to learn some tips on how to lower Hashimoto Antibodies, and what not to do to increase them.
I have Hashimoto Antibodies High, what does it mean?
When someone is going through the several Hypothyroid symptoms that appear, usually one goes with a normal or conventional doctor to say that “I am not feeling ok, I am loosing hair, I am having a belly that bloats, My gut is making lots of noise, I can’t sleep well, I feel low on energy, I feeling depressed, I am getting rashes”. And multiple symptoms that might be appearing, and somehow if you are lucky enough, the doctor will test for your thyroid labs to check if there is a hormonal imbalance.
Thyroid lab tests will be checking mainly the T3, T4 and TSH. If the doctor is only testing this out, you might have missed another important test.
If your TSH is showing a high range, then it would be probable that doctors will only give you levothyroxine and that will be the only solution.
As I have mentioned in my Hashimoto testimonial, healing Hashimoto or hypothyroidism is more than just taking a pill.
So, as time passes and you just take the levothyroxine, the symptoms might come back and you might ask, why?
You go back to the doctors, you check again the Thyroid Labs, but oh surprise, my TSH is normal, but I am feeling like shit, WHY?
The doctor, having no clue, might get annoyed by a patient that comes multiple times because he or she doesn’t find the answer, so naturally we look for another doctor who will test for the TPO and TGAB, the Hashimoto Antibodies.
So being labeled as a Hypothyroid, now the person gets the label of Hashimoto.
If you were able to find a functional medicine doctor, or a doctor with more experience with autoimmune disorders, he will explain immediately, but if not, you will still have the question, why?
There are multiple reasons a person can have high Hashimoto antibodies, where the most common is having a leaky gut.
