A member asked:

I know most people should have no tsi antibodies. but, if you have tsi yet are in "normal range" does this mean you def. will get grave's eventually?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Possibly: Tsi or thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin is associated with autoimmune thyroid disease, and can stimulate the thyroid to overproduce thyroid hormone. However, whether your thyroid levels become high depends on how sensitive your thyroid is to the antibody. In addition, sometimes there can be competing autoimmune thyroid disease causing destruction of thyroid tissue (hashimoto's).
