The presence of Thyroid Peroxidase antibodies.....

Is there anyone who knows about TPOab? My test resuly came back and the doctor's office said it was within normal range.

21.8 (0-35)

So is it ok to have some of these antibodies? I guess it must be since there is a reference range. Would someone PLEASE explain why I keep finding information about the "presence" of these antibodies being a problem but I cannot find any info about the TPO being "in range". How do I even search for this information? Thank you!

Re: The presence of Thyroid Peroxidase antibodies.....

im not an expert but i'm sure u can start looking under "thyroid peroxidase" and there's a bunch of info on that. the thyroid peroxidase is a "type of enzyme in the thyroid gland that is very important in the production of thyroid hormones." looks like ur numbers are within range. usually if this thyroid peroxidase is way off range, then the enyzme is attacking the thyroid itself. i have hashimoto's where my immune system is attacking my thyroid. looking at my latest results, my TPO is 322 with a range of <100. hope u find what your looking for. goodluck
