    Kimberly, I wonder what the definition of high antibodies is? Mine are 79.8 with normal being below 1.8.

    Hello – the guidance does give a definition of “high antibodies”, but unfortunately, I’m not familiar with the measurements they use:

    >50% TBII inhibition or TSI >8.8 IU/L

    In the lab results I’ve seen, TSI is expressed as a percentage, and I haven’t seen the TBII run very often in other patients. This would be a good question for your doctor, although keep in mind that the guidance I referenced was issued in the U.S., so that might make a difference as well.

    Take care!
