Not at this time: Thyroid labs are currently normal although not sure what reference range your lab used for thyroid peroxidase antibodies. In my lab, <9 is normal in which case your level is high and you could become hypothyroid in the future. If your range is <34 like other labs, then you're ok and don't need thyroid med right now.
