Dont worry: High thyroglobulin simply means you have thyroid tissue present in your body. Your tsh, t4/t3 are normal which means your thyroid is functioning normally. The high tpo and tg antibodies means you have hashimoto's which is autoimmune disease of thyroid. Although your thyroid is normal now there is an increased risk of becoming hypothyroid year to year so have TSH checked every 6-12 mths.
