Radiologist, Nuclear Medicine 's  Response
Your TSH value of 0.002 indicates that it is suppressed and there is excess thyroid hormones circulating in your blood stream.
Excess thyroid hormones in blood stream may be because of the following causes:
1. Excessive prodcution - Graves disease
2. Excessive release secondary to destruction of thyroid follicles - Thyroiditis
3. Excessive exogenous thyroid hormone intake - If you are already taking thyroxin

Antibodies (AMA) are neither specific or sensitive in identifying or differentiating thyroidits from graves disease. Thyroid antibodies are elevated in both the conditions.

For proper treatment, you have to differentiate thyroiditis (often a self limiting condition) from Graves disease (Requires proper treatment). This is usually done using thyroid scanning or Radioactive iodine uptake.

No other investigation can differentiate between the two.

Thyroiditis usually needs supportive care and usually reverts to euthyroid status or goes into hypothyroidism.
Graves is a serious condition requiring prolonged treatment and may affect the heart and weaken the bones apart from affecting the eyes.

Welcome to health care magic forum,

you are suffering from auto-immune thyroiditis (hsahimoto's thyroiditis).

latest researches are shows that thyroid disturbances are directly related with psychological factors like stress, tension, anxiety etc., and more found in females as they are emotionally vulnerable.

homeopathy is very safe and curative treatment for thyroid problems.

You can take homeopathic medicine very safely. be sure that your consulting doctor must be classical homeopath. Homeopathic medicine must be selected after taking detail history of your physical as well as mental makeup. Then n then you will get satisfactory result. So consult good classical homeopath. You will surely get benefit with homeopathy.
