Dr. Robert Boydston, leader in natural Hashimoto's treatment, elaborates:
If you have recently been diagnosed with hypothyroidism then need to make sure that you your TPO (thyroid perioxidase) and TBG (thyroglobulin) antibodies checked by your doctor. Over 90% of clinically diagnosed hypothyroidism has an autoimmune mechanism. These antibodies will indicate whether your immune system is "tagging" your thyroid as a foreign invader.
These simple tests are essential and necessary. If your thyroid gland is not functioning at one hundred percent, it is highly likely you have your immune system attacking your own gland. In this scenario it is critical that you address the autoimmune component of this disorder to optimize your chance of feeling better.
