What is a normal thyroglobulin level? Mine says 15 H then the antibody <1.8

OK: Thyroglobulin level is only useful if you are monitoring for thyroid cancer recurrent or just prior to surgery to evaluate the baseline tissue burden. If you still have a thyroid gland and no nodules or suspicion for cancer, I don't see the reason to check thyroglobulin. Thyroglobulin antibodies are antibodies to the thyroglobulin. This number is supposed to be negative &lt;1.8.
