Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and IVIG Treatment?*
Has anyone been recommended IVIG treatment for Hashimoto’s thyroiditis? I have found plenty of references for IVIG therapy for Hashimoto’s encephalopathy, but not for thyroiditis alone. Thanks in advance for any comments.

Hi @rose47, I'm not familiar with the different treatments for Thyroid Eye Disease but there is another discussion on Thyroid Graves Disease which I think is another name for TED that might be helpful.

Also, Mayo Clinic has information on the condition here:

I’m taking tirosint for hashimotos so my anti- bodies are abnormal but tsh t3-4 free and total are normal and tirosint has helped improve my numbers they are still elevated but getting better
I have Hashimoto’s all my dr gives me is Levothyroxine, I have peripheral neuropathy from b12 deficiency and chronic pain syndrome, and 1 day I was standing by my desk and I just pasted out I never do that and have never again and seen a cardiologist he said my heart was fine, because it happened at work I had a thorough work up and was diagnosed with Syncope I never heard of it till now I thought it was a made up diagnosis! I’m certainly not glad anyone has it but glad it wasn’t made up! I am learning a lot! Amazing how different dr’s treat the same illness
I have Hashimoto’s but my thyroid is totally gone! I take 75mcg replacement daily.
My thyroid is gone now (Hashimoto’s) and take Levothyroxin 75 mcg daily and my levels are normal.
