    Can plaquenil lower antibodies to thyroid

    However, high thyroid antibodies are a valuable indicator for autoimmune thyroid conditions and help to make a proper diagnosis of both Hashimoto’s and Grave’s disease. The main reason why the test for thyroid antibodies is not ordered as often as it should be lies in the treatment approach to hypothyroidism.

    Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is a drug that is classified as an anti-malarial drug. Plaquenil is prescribed for the treatment or prevention of malaria. It is also prescribed for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and the side effects of lupus such as hair loss, joint pain, and more. Autoimmune antibodies can interfere with TPO's ability to use iodine to produce these hormones, resulting in hypothyroidism. TPO antibodies cause inflammation, can eventually destroy all or part of your thyroid gland, and can also cause your thyroid gland to form nodules or to become enlarged. In Graves’ disease, the TSH level is usually lower than normal, whereas thyroid hormones are elevated. Anti-thyroperoxidase and anti-Tg antibodies are usually positive. Thyroid stimulating hormone receptor antibody TSH-R is also generally positive. In Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, the TSH level is elevated, whereas thyroid hormones are decreased.

    Only when Hashimoto’s disease progresses to hypothyroidism, thyroid hormone replacement therapy is prescribed. According to conventional medicine, euthyroid Hashimoto’s patients (those who have normal thyroid function) do not require any treatment and most practitioners take a “wait and watch” approach.

  7. Dec 27, 2010 But have been on Medrol, Plaquenil, and only a short time of Cellcept. My ANA went neg. But since they weaned me from 10 mg Medrol to 8- then had the eye problems, chills, diarrhea, etc, then to 6 mg, again with chills, eye problems, etc, the ANA went to 40 then 80 which I know is very low compared to before, but why does it do this?

    Antithyroid antibodies target specific parts of the thyroid gland, including. When the levels get too low, your body’s cells can’t get enough thyroid hormone and they can’t work as they. The rheumy basically told me almost all of my symptoms could be from "my thyroid disease". However, I have ANA 0 they said that could even be from the thyroid antibodies, and a rash & discoloration on my face, plus arthritis and sun sensitivity. The only thing they really didn't say could be from thyroid is my low complement values. I assume I got pregnant with my TG antibodies in the hundreds, and my TPO slightly lower but I don’t recall being tested near the time I had my first successful pregnancy, so I don’t know for sure. What I do know is that I really don’t think my thyroid antibodies played a role in my repeated miscarriages.

    Is plaquenil an immunosuppresant? Lupus Forums at The. From a technical point of view plaquenil is an immunosuppressant, however, from a medical point of view it is definitely NOT considered as one as its action is so light as to be insignificant in that respect. Any experienced lupus doctor would never describe plaquenil as an immunosuppressant.
