Thyroglobulin Antibodies Thyroid Cancer
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Yes: All cells of thyroid origin secrete thyroglobulin. Measuring it to follow a cancer ONLY makes since if the whole thyroid has been removed. If you have anti thyroglobulin antibodies, that makes thyroglobulin measurements unreliable. However, rising or decreasing anti thyroglobulin antibodies can be a proxy for thyroglobulin measurements. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

Positive for thyroid paroxidase antibodies and thyroglobulin antibodies. What does this mean? Had pap thyroid cancer in 2008 with thyroidectomy
Immunity to thyroid: The thyroid makes thyroglobulin (tg) and thyroid peroxidase (tpo). Even though you had your thyroid removed, your body's immune system sees tg and tpo as foreign and has made antibodies to them. This means that following your tg as a way to monitor your thyroid cancer might be unreliable. It could also mean you have thyroid tissue that is still present in your body. Ask your endocrinologist! ...Read more

Autoimmune disorders: like Rheumatoid Arthritis, diabetes & thyroiditis have an ^ed incidence in children with Down Syndrome (DS). A normal Free T4 & ^ed Ultrasensitive TSH indicates sub-clinical HYPOthyroidism that can become clinical. Macrocytosis, large RBC's, in infants with DS remains lifelong in 2/3rds. It can be associated with anemia from low Vitamin B12 & Folate (folic acid) or iron levels, hypothyroidism or leukemia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What does it mean when thyroid peroxidase antibodies 50.2 IU/mL?
Thyroglobulin antibodies 18.0 IU/mL?
Not much by itself: Thyroid antibodies are most helpful if you have a low free T4 and a high TSH indicating hypothyroidism which is most often due to autoimmune thyroid inflammation. If those tests are normal you need no treatment but your high antibodies suggest you have an increased risk of developing hypothyroidism somewhere down the road, but many people with antibodies never develop a thyroid problem. ...Read more

Please pursue this with your doctor and the the thyroid surgeon. If their answers make sense could you please let me know. ...Read more
Thyroglobulin antibodies are proteins made by the immune system. The immune system is recognizing the thyroid as strange to the body. Thus, this is a marker of autoimmune thyroid disease. It is usually measured to confirm hashimoto's thyroiditis, but can be seen in people without significant thyroid pathology and with normal thyroid levels. It can also be seen with ...Read more
