Brief Answer:
TSH is elevated

Detailed Answer:
Hi there.

Welcome to health care magic.

I am Dr srilatha Gynecologist.

I had gone through your query

I understand your concern.

After analysing your reports i am able to notice subtle changes in your haemogram(CBC).

Haemogram is showing borderline microcytic anaemia.

The level of thyroid stimulating hormone(TSH) is elevated.

Elevated TSH might be due to a condition called HYPOTHYROIDISM.

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the body lacks sufficient thyroid hormone.

The Anaemia might also be due to hypothyroid and excess bleeding.

Symptoms of hypothyroidism are;-

1.Weakness,Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight
2.Coarse, dry hair
3.Dry, rough pale skin
4.Hair loss
5.Cold intolerance
6.Muscle cramps and frequent muscle aches
7.Constipation
8.Depression
9.Abnormal menstrual cycles
10.Decreased libido

Hypothyroidism is most commonly seen in reproductive age women.

Your doctor gave you the most appropriate treatment for this condition.

There is nothing to worry.

With in 2-3 weeks most of the symptoms will disappear.

Thyroid profile need to be repeated after 2-3 weeks.

Thyroxin tablets need to be taken early in morning with little water on empty stomach.

Avoid taking any food for 30-45mins after taking thyroid tablet,since food may decrease the absorption of the medication.

Hope this satisfies your query

Feel free to discuss further

Regards.

Brief Answer:
TPO antibodies are commonly seen in Autoimmune thyroid

Detailed Answer:
Hi there,

Good day.

TPO antibodies are thyroid specific antibodies, they are the reason for destruction of the thyroid gland.

As per the report they are elevated.

This condition might be called as Hashimoto's disease. For accurate diagnosis it's advisable to go for Fine needle aspiration cytology study(FNAC).

These antibodies will get reduced in due course of time.

Hope this satisfies your query.
