    I was looking at my old labs for something else, and noticed my FT3 and anti TPO antibodies are high. This is 2.5 years after the test was ran, and nothing had been said. Would this be something that would cause my problems? What exactly do these mean?

    Pic of lab attached incase values mean anything.

    Probably because the very slight elevation of both values is not significant. You could repeat the test and see if there has been any change.

    Anti TPO is one of the two antibodies for Hashimoto's Disease (and forgive me if you already know this and are asking something else)!

    Thank you @alicec and @Gingergrrl I guess it isn't high enough to matter. Good to know!
