Thanks for writing in. Currently, all the three thyroid functions test results that you have discussed are in the normal range, except that the thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPO Ab) are slightly elevated.
Variations in the thyroid stimulating hormone levels can occur during the course of a day and can also vary with different assay methods and kits and definitely from laboratory to laboratory. There are several other technical aspects responsible for variation as well. Thus, it is important to interpret the TSH values in consideration with other thyroid parameters. Significantly, all these are in the normal range.
However, a slightly elevated TPO antibodies levels provides us with crucial prognostic information. People with elevated TPO Ab levels are more likely to become hypothyroid than those with no antibodies. So you would need to monitor your thyroid function tests (TFTs) periodically say once in a year. I would like to assure you that you are not heading for hyperthyroidism.
Hope that this information helps and hope that you will get better soon.
