Anti Tpo Antibodies
Elevated: Hi. In the labs I know, those levels would be above normal, indicating an autoimmune process in the thyroid. They do not imply anything about thyroid function, and can be seen elevated in hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and with normal thyroid function. If your thyroid function is abnormal, those antibodies would imply an autoimmune etiology. ...Read more
The body uses antibodies to attack and remove foreign substances. Useful as an aid in the diagnosis of thyroid autoimmune disorders; differentiating thyroid autoimmune disorders from nonautoimmune goiter or hypothyroidism; as a diagnostic tool in deciding whether to treat a patient ...Read more

Negative result for thyroid peroxidase antibodies tpoab . Necessary to test my thyroglobulin antibodies tgab ?
Anti-thyroglobulin: Studies have shown that 99% of patients with hashimoto's thyroiditis have anti-microsomal antibodies, whereas only about 1/3rd had anti-thyroglobulin antibodies. In addition, 10-20% of persons without thyroid problems have anti-throglobulin antibodies (tg-a). These persons are likely at higher risk for future problems and should be watched more closely however, testing for tg-a is not necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sjögren's syndrome: Anti-ssa antibodies are most commonly associated with Sjögren's syndrome, but it does not confirm a diagnosis. Pts should may have symptoms of dry eyes and dry mouth, which are classic for Sjögren's syndrome. These ab's are also associated with connective tissue diseases such as lupus or SLE. However, a pt must have clinical and lab abnormalities to meet the diagnosis. ...Read more

Past hepatitis B: These results indicate that at some time in the past, you had Hepatitis B virus - but it appears now to have gone. You don't have any antigens (Ag) which would indicate ongoing viral replication. The antibody tests (Ab) appear to show that you were positive for the actual virus, as opposed to becoming positive from a vaccine. Best to follow up with your doctor about all this. You should be fine. ...Read more
Kindly interpret HBsAg reactive, anti HBs non reactive, HBeAg non reactive, Anti HBe recative,Anti HBc IgM non reactive?
Hepatitis B: Because you have Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) present, that means you have hepatitis B in your liver. I wonder if you have any symptoms -such as turning yellow? In the Philippines there is a high prevalence of hepatitis B, and many people were infected at the time of birth. The other lab findings seem to suggest that. Hope you can see a ID doctor there or GI doctor for treatment. God bless ...Read more
Anti microsomal antibody is -191 and anti thyroglobulin antibody is-236.1 iu/ml what does it mean , suggest medicines?
Autoimmune: These antibody titers point to the presence of an autoimmune process which makes you at a higher risk of getting thyroid disease. Need to know what your thyroid function is and what kinds of symptoms you have before any suggestion on treatment can be made. Shouldn't you be talking to the doctor who ordered these tests? ...Read more
Please interpret my hepatitis b profile result: thanks
HBsAg - reactive
ANTI HBs- non-reactive
ANTI HAV IgM- non-reactive
Hep B testing: You need to have your doctor repeat the testing for confirmation because as it stands right now, you are currently positive for Hepatitis B although it does not show you as infectious to others. Nevertheless, these are rudimentary labs that need to be addressed by your primary doctor for further clarification. ...Read more

What would cause a high positive ANA (1:640) speckled, nucleolar with a low positive smooth muscle antibody (1:40) but negative SS-A, SS-B, anti-Smith, RNP, SCL-70, Anti Jo antibodies? Liver disease?
Probably normal: Many people have a positive ANA without being sick. If you also have elevated liver enzymes, a workup for autoimmune hepatitis may be continued, but if there's nothing to suggest a liver problem biochemically, I'd not be in a hurry to diagnose despite anti-smooth-muscle. ANA means nothing apart from the clinical picture. Best wishes. ...Read more
My t3is 108.21 T4 is 10.80 n TSH is 5.43.Antinuclear antibodies is negative. Antithyroglobulin antibodies is <15.0.Peroxidase antibodies is h 100.30?
Hashimoto's: Your labs showed that you have hashimoto's thyroid disease, an autoimmune thyroid disease that will cause hypothyroidism over time. You are currently subclinically hypothyroid but in light of the positive antibodies, you should talk to your doctor to get treated, especially since you are 24 and is at a reproductive age. Good luck, . ...Read more
Exposure to HBV: Being anti-hbc igg positive can mean that one has had hbv infection in the past (anti-hbs will also be +) or currently infected (hbsag will be +). Some people are only + for anti-hbc igg which can reflect current low grade infection, remote infection, or a false positive. ...Read more
Elevated EBV ab VCA IgG <8 and EBV nucleaer antigen ab IgG test 4.2. & anti-dna(ss)igg ab qn ( 119)& c react protien(5.6) what are implications?
Nothing.: Ebv antibodies indicate you had a previous infection, but not active. The c-reactive protein needs a units indicator - that is either normal or somewhat elevated. The anti ss dna is extremely nonspecific and very rarely indicated; I have no idea why that was ordered, discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
My THYROID ANTIBODY Peroxidase TPO Ab is 5 [0-34 IU/mL] and myTHYROID ANTIBODY thyroglobulin Tg Ab is 161 [0-40 IU/mL]. What this mean?
How can you be negative for anti-TPO antibodies if they are detected, even if they are in the normal range? Does anyone have a value of 0 for these?
Lab practice: This is an arcane subject in clinical pathology. Antibodies are detected based on activities, not the specific identification of molecules. A lab sets a decision level at which an assay is reported as likely to indicate disease, with the understanding that what is really being measured is the ability of all the proteins totaled to bind to the test antigen. ...Read more

Hashimoto's thyroid : It means you have hashimoto's thyroid disease but your thyroid function is currently normal. This might be because you are taking the correct dose of thyroid hormone replacement or because your thyroid is still able to make normal amount of hormone despite the insults from the antibodies. If this is the case, monitor your thyroid function closely because you will become hypothyroid in the future. ...Read more
24 yr male with 60 kg, 5.5" tall, high anti-TPO antibodies..And a slightly elevated tsh.. Normal t3and t4..Not gaining weight.. Shd i start thyroxine?
Hard call: Different endocrinologists will offer you different opinions. Staying trim like you are now is of course good. The question is whether your hashimoto's (which i suspect you have -- does your physician?) is slipping into hypothyroidism; only a minority do -- and if so, whether you want to take a bit of thyroxine perhaps as an experiment. Talk with yourdoctor & perhaps a 2nd opinion. Good luck. ...Read more
What if my inlaw has increased TSH LEVEL MORE THAN 30, and anti TPO antibody more than 1000, with age 30 and averagebuilt lady, without any complaints?
Ask doctor: If they have no complaints, I would repeat the tests to make sure that the lab did not make an error or get the samples mixed up with another person's. If tests were accurate, ask your doctor to look for signs of hypothyroidism(Hashimoto's) such as enlarged thyroid, fatigue, constipation , cold intolerance etc. On the other hand, this may turn out to be an unique case which defies common wisdom . ...Read more

What can cause raised MCV(102) and MCH(2.16)? I have TPO antibodies but other thyroid levels are fine. B12 is 273. Something to worry about?
Need more info: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your B12 level is at the lower end of normal. Please discuss with your doctor if you may benefit from B12 supplement, may be by injection. Your doctor may wish to check you folate (folic acid) level, especially if Hgb is low. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
TSH normal, but TPO antibodies 17. I am on levothyroxine 25mcg. Will my conception be risky with this many TPO antibodies?
What does it mean if my TSH is higher than normal and so are my TPO antibodies but my T4 levels are normal? I was told i have hashimoto's.
Consistent with: Hashimoto. Please do follow up with your doctor as you are heading toward thyroid deficiency and if your doctor suggests going on thyroid replacement, it would be good to comply with the doctor's advice. ...Read more

Hello, I have FT4 +31,6 pmol/I, TSH +0,02mU/I and TPO antibodies >4. Also some mass is growing on my right Thyroid lobe. What that could be?
Hyperthyroid: Your FT4 is high, TSH low, positive antibodies, all consistent with autoimmune thyroid disease, such as Graves disease, or possibly Hashitoxicosis. Common symptoms are tremor, palpitations, anxiety, feeling hot, and others. I suspect your whole thyroid is enlarged, although the R lobe may be bigger. You need to see an Endocrinologist. Medications (e.g. methimazole) now. Maybe ablation later. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My TSH level is 2.61 with 25mcg synthroid, (thyroxine) but my TPO antibodies are 17.I want to conceive now, how risky is it?Can Synthroid (thyroxine) lower my TPO antibodies?
My TSH levels after 25mcg Synthroid (thyroxine) treatment are lowered from 4.67 to 2.61 in 18 days.TPO antibodies are 17. Is it safe to conceive now?
Hypothyroidism/preg: Usually with untreated hypothyroidism, it will be difficult to conceive. With high TPO antibodies, there is a higher risk of spontaneous abortion and preterm births. Knowing that, it is fine to try conceive now. As per 2013, treatment of TPO antibodies with IVIG or selenium is not recommended. http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jtr/2013/542692/tab2/ ...Read more
Do I need thyroid hormone if I have low free t3, (liothyronine) normal TSH and high tpo antibodies?
Possibly.: The TSH is normal so it might be a variation of normal or euthyroid. It also might be a developing thyroid condition, but there would be symptoms, like fatigue. The tpo antibodies might mean hashimoto's thyroiditis. This is usually associated with hypothyroidism. It would be wise to see your doctor to follow up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
