Re: Thyroid Peroxidase-What is a normal range?
Your Graves-like lab results in the presense of TPO antibodies (especially without elevated TSI), rather than actually indicating Graves, most likely represent fluctuations in thyroid hormone release from ongoing autoimmune destruction of your thyroid. In all likelihood you will eventually develop Hashimoto's and need horomone replacement. If you are currently having symptoms, you could talk to you doctor about something like propranolol to help you feel better. RAI shouldn't be a consideration at this point.
