My Thyroid was removed in 2009, But my Antibodys still show

From: katydid77 - 3 years 25 weeks ago

I have been dealing with the struggle of issues that we cant pin point to an issue, I do have adrenal insufficiency, was diagnosed with that in 2014, I have lupus symptoms but all test come back fine, I have periodic low Igf-1 hormones, I deal with asthma and swollen lymph nodes in my neck, in 2009 had my thyroid removed, I produce thyroid anti-bodies but no thyroid. I am confused to what is going on with me. Could my body be producing the Anti-bodys because it is trying to attack my parathyroid? can it play a role into my IGF-1 ? Should I be looking into how my pancrease plays a role in this?

I am also wondering if the body produces its own form of anti-inflammatory hormone? I am allergic to anti-inflammatory's Nsaids, asprins alieve all I can take is tylenol. And I wonder if my bodys natural production of such a hormone can actually be the cause of why I feel like crap all the time.

Then I am wondering if I have reactions to certain foods, chemicals and so on, my body is producing hestamine, but maybe my dao enzyme is low and having issues with prostagdalins,

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Is this good advice?

Your thyroid was removed because the anti -bodies were attacking it. Removing it can't stop the anti-bodies only give it nothing to attack. However, i don't know if they would start attacking your parathyroid.
