    Thyroid peroxidase (TPO) is an enzyme used by the thyroid gland in the manufacture of thyroxine. In patients with autoimmune thyroiditis, the body produces antibodies to TPO, which mount a direct attack on the thyroid gland itself, resulting in reduced thyroxine production and consequent hypothyroidism. Levels of TPO antibodies in blood spot can indicate the presence and extent of autoimmune thyroiditis. The most predominant form of autoimmune thyroiditis is known as Hashimoto’s disease, which is also the most common cause of overt hypothyroidism; 95% of such patients are positive for TPO antibodies. Testing for TPO antibodies has also been found to help diagnose thyroid disease in patients with abnormal thyroidstimulating hormone and/or mild thyroid symptoms. The reference range for TPO antibodies is 0—150 IU/mL, while 70—150 IU/mL is borderline for the presence of autoimmune thyroiditis. 

      We strongly recommend that you consult your results with your Health Care Provider, GP or Doctor to know whether or not any further actions need to be carried out and get started with ample treatment if it is needed.
