Hi Dr. Lupo-
You answered one of my previous posts, but the ranges were jumbled and made it appear that my Thyroperoxidase Antiboides were within range. Sorry about that.
Below is the testing results again.
My questions is about the Thyroperoxidase Antibodies-mine were 96 and the range is under 35. Does this mean anything-or nothing to worry about.
I was also wondering if the Calcium and Vitamin D results indicate anything in particular?
With all the strange symptoms I've been having the past 8 months or so, I want to make sure my test results aren't revealing anything I need to know.

Vit D is low - recommend talking to your doctor about optimizing it (>40 in most cases)
TPO antibody high, but TSH most recently very normal -- aka "euthyroid hashimoto's" - medication is not necessary in these cases, but sometimes a trial of low dose meds may help with nonspecific symptoms. Would go w/ the vitamin D treatment first. Ca is 9.9 -- appears normal, but if gets above 10 consistently, check PTH.
