I was diagnosed with an under active Thyroid Oct 2012 TSH 13,797 er UI/ml, Oct 2012 5,627 after being on medication, Jul 2013 5,961 so levels are rising still, I have another blood test October, what concerns me is that In July my TPO was 1000 per UI/ml & TG 1038 UI/ml which I know is high but do not understand the implications, I live in Spain so going to the Doctor can be difficult. I also have high cholesterol trigliceridos 80 per mg/dl HDL 78 & LDL 155 per mg/dl, I eat a balanced healthy diet and trying very hard to reduce this level.
I still have major bloating, excessive lethargy and really struggling to lose weight

You need to test for antibodies. Most thyroid problems are actually auto immune disorders. You really need a full thryoid panel which includes T3 and RT3 as well as antibodies to get the full picture.
