Why do my thyroid hormones increase even though my TSI is decreasing?

Often, we’ll see an increase in thyroid hormones in those with Graves’ disease. This is due to thyroid stimulating immunoglobulins (TSI), a type of TSH receptor antibody that binds to the TSH receptors and causes the thyroid gland to release an excessive amount of thyroid hormone.

For some people on the healing journey, TSI and thyroid hormone levels decrease simultaneously. However, this isn’t always the case. Today, I’m sharing why you might find thyroid hormone levels increasing despite decreasing TSI.

In this episode, you’ll learn about:
- Causes of increased thyroid hormone levels in those with Graves' disease
- The relationship between TSI and thyroid hormone production
- What it can mean when thyroid hormone decreases while TSI increases
- Why it’s crucial to find and treat the underlying causes
- How elevated TSI levels can trigger a more vigorous immune response
- Lab reference ranges for TSI
- When to be concerned about fluctuations in thyroid hormones and TSI
- How often to test TSI and thyroid hormone levels


As always, I hope you find this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
