Suggest treatment for hashimotos thyroiditis

I have every symptom of hashimotos thyroiditis and I can not find a Dr. willing to listen to me. I have been tracking this for 8 years. I recently found out that a few years ago some blood work showed deficiencies in my thyroid and the Dr. told me everything was fine. Now all my tests are coming back normal. I know that if you have been suffering with this for some time that your white blood cells can be so weak they cant even produce the antibodies they are testing for. I believe I fall in this category. What do I do now, no one is listening.

Hi

Welcome to HCM
Thanks for posting this question

The treatment of hypothyroidism is thyroid hormone replacement.

The treatment of Hashimoto's disease without hypothyroidism is only symptomatic. Once your TSH goes above 5 miu/ ml we need to start on treatment
