    Hi Rita,
    all your thyroid antibodies are as expected for someone in remission from Graves' disease. Thyroglobulin is a little high but it's falsely high because of your thyroglobulin antibodies.
    TSH is generally 0.4 or lower when your thyroid levels are ok but your levels are still on the low side. if you feel fine with low thyroid hormone levels, no problem but it would be good if they were a little higher. best, elaine
