Before over reacting to the thyroid tests look through your supplements and see if you are taking Biotin (AKA B7 AKA Vitamin H). Many people have been wrongly diagonsed with hyperthyroidism because they took this supplement before their thyroid tests. You need to be off of Biotin for 3-5 days before the test or it very well can affect those tests.

However, the TPO and TG results would indicate hashimotos at the least. And I don't believe those are impacted by Biotin. If you are taking high doses of Biotin, just get tests re-taken after holding off on those supplements for 3-5 days.
