I have hypothyroidism problem. Can I get help from any Online doctor

I am a 34 year old female with 2 kids -- 5yrs old and 9 months old. During my second pregnancy - I was dectected with hypothyroidism and given dosage of 50 mcg daily Thyronorm. After delivery I have started taking homeopathic medicine for hypothyroidism given by my doctor . My TSH Levels have gone done from 9.54 to 6.97 over the last 3 months and also I feel more energetic. But my TPO levels have increased drastically from 1300 to 3171 in the last 3 months which is contradicting the improvement in thyroid. The doctor asked me to get a repeat test done which indicates the same result. As per him - the TSH levels have improved as well as the thyroid symptoms are reducing; also TPO should have come down. Please guide since I was reading on the internet that a high TPO can indicate thyroid cancer as well

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Hypothyroididm with high TPO antibodies suggest auto-immune disorder like Hashimoto's thyroiditis. In such cases where the TPO antibodies are high warrants immunotherapy using drugs to reduce immune response. You will need to get an FNAC of the thyroid to confirm the diagnosis and then consult an Endocrinologist for best care. Eat healthy. Drink plenty of water. Exercise daily to keep weight in control. Stay stress free.

welcome to HCM,
As your TSH level and symptoms are decreasing then TPO must have to come down.
Don't worry repeat the test in good qualified laboratory. surely your confusion will get down with TPO level. LOL.....
Take care...
