TPOab is a little confusing. It is considered a thyroid antibody, but it is an antibody that can be found in small titers (quantity, numbers) in several autoimmune conditions.

100 is a pretty small titer, so it is a little ambiguous as to what the result means. It means you have an autoimmune condition.

What other tests were run?

TPOab does not respond to treatment reliably. Selenium may have some effect on the titer, but there are no long term tests showing any way to control antibody concentrations.
