Re: what does high Thyroid Peroxidase mean?
 
If you mean antibodies (like everyone does), it means your body is attacking your thyroid. Meaning, you have or might in the future develop Hashimoto's thyroiditis (hypothyroidism) or Graves' disease (hyperthyroidism).

Hard to say without other values (TSH, free T3, free T4); it seems there are people out there with antibodies and absolutely no thyroid problems whatsoever, too.
