Hi there ...

Thank you for the question ...

Normal levels for Thyroglobulin is up to 20 IU/ml .

Normal levels for Thyroid peroxidase antibody is up to 35 IU/ml

As you have raised both levels , this is suggestive of Autoimmune thyroid issue like Hashimotos Thyroiditis .

So tou should now consult Endocrinologist for further advise please .

Good luck.

what if it appears that they thyroid is normal function, but I really don't feel like myself
Expert:  dr abid replied 3 months ago.

Often thyroid function test are within normal limits , which is rare manifestation of Hshimotos , and this entity is associated with other autoimmune disease and Vitamin B 12 deficiency , so you if you have normal thyroid function than you should look for other issues like Vitamin B 12 deficiency .

Good luck.
