Brief Answer: Hashimoto thyroiditis or graves disease Detailed Answer: Dear madam Welcome to healthcare magic I reviewed your quiery, according to laboratory values, its been noted that you have raised TSH, anti thyroid antibodies with normal T3 and T4 levels.. It indicates the early onset of hashimoto thyroiditis in most most the times.. in early stages it is characterised by slightly raised TSH and normal T3 and T4 it is looking like it is in early stage.. Usually it is associated with symptoms like cold intolerance, fatigue, breathlessness.. Consult your doctor and confirm the diagnosis.. Thyroid hormone supplementation is the only treatment option available.. the disease is not curable but early supplementation of hormones will control the pace of disease.. Hope information is helpful Thanks
