Thank you thank you thank you Ski, For such a sound and pragmatic response– This makes me a little less worried, to hear the antibody levels can bounce around. And yes, I wish we had checked them before I went off ATD, but I had to strong-arm my endo just for this. He hates to check antibodies, claiming we only need to know that they exist.
I will focus on normal T levels going forward. Keeping fingers crossed; blood work coming up next weekend. And a lot can happen in a year. I have read about small maintenance doses of ATDs working too! So there is still room to make adjustments.
And I appreciate your mention of the bottom line. This disease really scared me, and I forgot that there are simple, straightforward goals to focus on. Much better than focusing on the crazy stuff I can’t control.
Thank you again.
