Thank you Kimberly. My TPOab was elevated. Is it known why the TPOab gets elevated with GD patients? I'm guessing that is has to do with a goiter? I'm thinking this b/c isn't a goiter the one thing thyroiditis patients have in common with GD pts? Just curious.
~ Fellow GD patient diagnosed June 2012 with a non-existent TSH, elevated fT3 and fT4, and a TSI of 4.5. On Methimazole 30mg/day for the first 8 weeks. On Methimazole 10mg/day for the next 6 weeks. On Methimazole 5mg/day for a week and a half. On Methimazole 5mg every 4 days for a month. On Methimazole 2.5mg/day starting Nov 15. Current labs show a normal fT4, a normal TSH, and a TSI of 3.2. Diet: Gluten and yeast free. Love to read and learn. Very interested in the immune part of GD ~
