My thyroid hormones (TSH and T4) test results are back- all still in normal range, when I clearly have anti-thyroid antibodies! Just tells you that if I had not run this test, I would have never known. If everything else (Lupus Anti-coagulant and anti-cardiolipin autoantibodies) come back as normal, then I guess I will be put on thyroid hormones during the next pregnancy, though managing it will be tricky.
The thing that is making me very nervous is that these anti-thyroid antibodies are known to go hand in hand with T cell dysfunction and other B cell dysfunctions too, in which case you have an immune system running amuck- VERY difficult to keep it from kungpao-ing your baby :(
Praying its not this, and its just this one isolated autoimmune issue. I get hypothyroidism from both sides of my family, so its logical that I might have this problem.
Just a note for all mommies to be- if you have a family history of hypothyroidism, maybe its worth getting this test run, because as I am clearly demonstrating, this problem might not show up if you just test for thyroid hormones.
