Hi, I saw an endocrinologist in January and May this year.
January 2014 - the endocrinologist told me I had Hashimoto's but now cannot be the case if I have anti-TG and anti-TPO antibodies, whilst not positive going by March's results that are not near the range. The endocrinologist has since looked at these results and said the anti-TG antibodies are possibly still inflicting damage to the thyroid (but I have had no goitre or swelling of the thyroid since, so cannot be true and the antibodies are now out of positive range so I have no idea what she was talking about).
She didn't arrange a repeat ultrasound despite me having an enlarged thyroid which showed up on an ultrasound scan in January 2012. A second one in March showed the thyroid was normal. So that was that.
She said I had positive ANA antibodies but didn't run a full assay on them. She only did one that covered Anti-sm, Anti-Parietal and Anti-Mitochondrial. No Anti-la, Anti-Ro or Anti-Jo1 that she said she did. These aren't present on the result printout.
She did not test every single sex hormone either - only LH, Prolactin, FSH, Testosterone and Calcium. I don't know where the estrogen or progesterone tests are. I thought they're sex hormones?
So maybe if my endocrinologist is not being very thorough, I could look at going to a different one? Or is that jumping the gun?
