    You have a high titer of thyro-peroxidase antibodies. These antibodies attack the thyroid gland, rendering it unable to provide enough thyroid hormone for your body's needs. They are the most common cause of hypothyroidism in industrialized countries.

    Are you being treated for hypothyroidism now?

    Your levels are very high. Mine were at one point over 1200 (they are now 95). I found by eliminating bread, gluten and dairy that they slowly declined. I did not test positive for celiac but eliminating it has helped with my hashimoto or autoimmune thyroid.
