Something not right: A high thyroid antibody level suggests that you are more prone to develop a thyroid disease and other autoimmune diseases but this is not a certainty. The high bilirubin and selenium level is of concerned and one would wonder where the source of selenium is. You need to consult your doctor and perhaps a GI specialist.
