Question: Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

 lovie29520 - Fri Mar 28, 2003 1:41 pm

I tested positive for Hashimoto's Thyroiditis back in 1999/2000. For the last two years my blood test by my primary care physician have come back "normal". Isn't it true that different people respond to different levels? I live day to day with every symptom of thyroid problems, but my test come back "okay". I don't know what to do. I am 24 years old and I feel like I'm 60. Please help!!!

User avatar Dear lovie29520,
Please specify the type of tests you are talking about and their results in addition to the normal reference values. Your TSH levels in addition to Free T3, T4 would be the most valuable results.
