In Response To: Hashimoto Thyroid B-blood (mkr)
I'm not too knowledgable about this, but I have been on thyroid med myself based on a low basal body temperature. My Naturopath put me on the all natural hormones about 3 weeks ago. I've been sick for about 2 years now, and my temp is usually between 96.2 and 97.2. Haven't had much improvement yet, but she says it usually takes months to get the thyroid working right.
Anyway, as for the antibody, I know that when you have low functioning thyroid symptoms, it can either be that your thyroid is functioning at a lower than normal level, or you can actually have antibodies present (antimicrosomal and antithyroglobulin) that actually attack the thyroid gland and interfere with it's function. They can also attach to the pancreas, adrenal glands, and acid producing cells of the stomach. In Hashimoto's disease, the thyroid function is impaired by these antibodies.
I do believe that the thyroid horomones will help this condition, as will certain vitamins and minerals. So I don't know why your doctor has decided against using them. I'd find myself a good Naturopath.
Hope this helps!
