Bump in the road

10 Jan 2018

Hit a bump in the road to remission as my TSH levels dropped to 0.067. T4 and T3 are still within their respective ‘normal’ range. I have a new endocrinologist now that I’ve relocated to Florida and once again got the advice to either go with RAI or surgery, to which I declined again. I’m still on 2.5 mg of methimazole per day and so far not showing any signs of toxicity (knock wood).

The blood test results I received under my new doctors were more detailed than what I was receiving  when I was in GA so I have additional values that I’m keeping an eye on:

Thyroid Stimulating Immunoglobin: 497% (normal is 0-139)

Thyrotropin Receptor Ab: 6.53 IU/L (normal is 0.00-1.75)

Thyroid Peroxidase Ab: 92 IU//mL (normal is 0-34)

Thyrogolbulin Ab: <1.0 IU/mL (normal 0.0-0.9)

Even though my blood work is still showing signs for Graves’, I remain asymptomatic and am feeling good. I suspect the stress of moving may have caused some of my numbers to jump so we’ll see if it settles down again in another 3 months at my next lab visit.

Happy 2018!
