Also - please demand tests for thyroid antibodies - which could explain the dramatic up down results you've had. It's impossible to diagnose hashimotos from this distance but at the very least they should be ruling it out.

Good luck.

Apparently I had a test for thyroid peroxidase in January, which I didn't know about (honestly, the chronic fatigue clinic wanted so many tests and I looked up everything I could, but there were still a few mysteries). The result was "33" on a scale where "0-59" is normal. (As a scientist, I really hate having random numbers without the unit!).

Assuming that the same units are used everywhere in the world (which I don't know, since I don't know what the units were), people can have values in the hundreds or even thousands. So... I dunno. I guess my thyroid probably isn't eating itself right now?
