You can do very little to control the antibody count. The count will go up or down as it wishes. It is possible it may drop a lot, but not likely.

Taking selenium may help lower the count. It has been shown to lower the number significantly in some people, while it has no effect on others. It is safe to take 200mcg per day if you wish to try that. It may work, it may not.

The upper limit of safe intake of selenium is 400mcg per day, and we all get some in our food and our vitamins. If you take too much selenium it can poison you, so do not take more than 200mcg per day.

It is also possible to have more than one type of thyroid antibody. If you have not been tested for other antibodies, it might be a good idea to ask about that.
