An elevated TBO ab1 can result from many underlying causes, of which the most common is Thyroid disease. Your Thyroid controls your metabolism which controls your cholesterol levels in many ways. Think of your metabolism as the furnace that burns fat. When your Thyroid is acting up it can cause your metabolism to burn fewer fats resulting in higher lipid levels.

Let us know what your doctor says and good luck.
