My thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies are at 278. They just continue to rise even though I have been prescribed Levothyroxine. The doctor doesn’t really have an answer. I’m having hairloss

      Check estrogen if I are near menopause.

      Take vitamin d3 and make sure you don’t have an iron deficiency

        @Hummingbird I am taking the D3 but I’m not sure of the iron. I will have that checked. Thank you for your response 🙏

      You should also have your parathyroid hormone (PTH) tested. Levothyroxine will kill off your thyroid. Which will also kill off your parathyroid. I had Hashimoto thyroiditis, I also had a benign golf ball size tumor on my thyroid. I had a subtotal thyroidectomy, meaning I was left with 1/3 of my thyroid. It worked fine until I broke my neck and had surgery to have a disc Fusion.

        @ICC4SCI oh myyyy. That is terrible. She tested my T3 T4 and TSH and those are all normal. I did have an ultrasound of my thyroid and they said that was fine too. I’ve been trying to figure this out for about 3 years now. 😥 the doctors just seem clueless most of them. I wonder why they can’t help. Ugghhh

      Sounds like Hashimoto or Graves disease. What are your free T3, free T4, and TSH levels. An Endocrinologist would be checking all of these and should be concerned. If not, switch to another doctor. They are not all alike. Hashimoto and Graves are very serious autoimmune diseases. Your body is attacking itself. And anxiety can be a result of these thyroid conditions. It's definitely why you're losing your hair.
