Hashimoto’s/Thyroid Autoimmunity – What Stage Are You?

Quote of the week today comes from Dr Kharrazian, the author of Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms When My Lab Results Are Normal?

I see this all the time: people told they don’t have thyroid issues, even though their autoimmune antibodies are higher than they should be. It’s an early warning sign, folks!

Which stage are you at? And, if you don’t know, you can test here:

Thyroid Tests

How about starting with the free basal temperature test? If it looks dodgy, then do a blood test.

Typical hypothyroid symptoms might include fatigue, weight gain, constipation, dry skin, no mojo. Read more on my Thyroid Factsheet here.

# 1

Silent autoimmunity: Elevated TPO and/or thyroglobulin (Tg) antibodies with no symptoms or loss of tissue.

# 2

Autoimmune reactivity: Elevated TPO and/or Tg antibodies with symptoms and normal TSH levels.

# 3

Autoimmune disease: Elevated antibodies with symptoms, measurable tissue destruction, and elevated TSH.

Understanding the stages of autoimmunity may help you in managing your Hashimoto’s before tissue loss is too great.
