Thyroid Antibody Testing

Hello Everyone,

In our last article we talked about the fact that the number one cause of hypothyroidism is an autoimmune thyroid and there has to be a reason that your body is attacking your thyroid.

That is what we are going to discuss in this thyroid treatment success article.

There are certain tests that need to be run on the thyroid- not just a TSH or a free T3 or a free T4- there are specific antibodies called TPO and TGB antibodies.  If these antibody tests are positive then you have an autoimmune thyroid.  Chances are that your doctor has not run these two tests.

Now there are many other tests that need to be run for the thyroid but these are the two big ones to detemine if you have an autoimmune thyroid.

And if you are autoimmune, you have to find out why you are autoimmune.

Remember, I said there are two parts to y our immune syster, TH1 and TH2.  They need to work in balance.  If one is dominant or working harder than the other, it is usually because there is something called an active antigen.

And what is an active antigen?  It can be a parasite.  It can be a virus, a bacteria mold or fungi.  It can be a food protein, such as gluten (the protein in wheat, barley, and rye) or casein (a milk protein).

Your immune system could become imbalanced because of disregulation due to hormonal surges and/or extreme stress.  Blood sugar problems and/or chronic inflammation and/or high cortisol levels can all cause your immune system to run amuck.

If you or anyone you know is suffering from Hypothyroidism, get checked now!  Don’t suffer a minute longer.  Call us for a free consultation…862-2224.

Have a great day, keep an eye out for our next article in which I will teach you how you can tell if you are autoimmune!

Bye for now,

Dr. Price
