Have thyroid tissue:
Thyroglobulin is made in thyroid tissue.
It is useful only in patients who have had a total thyroidectomy with or without a mop-up dose of 131i for thyroid cancer. If thyroglobulin levels are still present it means there is thyroid tissue left (normal or cancerous). No thyroglobulin afterward that means a good job by the surgeon/nuclear technologist. If negative and then positive=recurrence. ...Read more
I just had my TT in May 18th, had RAI 23rd June, before the RAI my thyroglobullin reported 30 ug/l, is this considered very high?
What is important is not the initial value but what it will be let's say in about 6 months...
Antibody: Anti-thyroglobulin is an antibody directed at the thyroid gland can be cause foe hypothyroidism. The thyroid contains sequestered proteins. Proteins that are not exposed to the immune system while we develop in utero. If immune system is exposed can mount immune response that slowly destroys thyroid over time. Look up hashimotos thyroiditis. ...Read more

35 f fertility dr tested thyroglobulin. It was 78.5, normal range 0-55. Ab normal. What could this mean?
Depends: Thyroglobulin is the protein used to make thyroid hormone. It is a normal component of the thyroid and, in someone healthy, checking thyroglobulin level does no add information. In someone who underwent thyroidectomy, the level should be very low if the surgery removed the whole gland. The antibodies are used as marker of autoimmune thyroid disease. ...Read more
NOTHING: It's as normal finding. I don't know why anyone would have drawn it in the first place. Talk w/your doctor. ...Read more
Yes: Anti-thyroglobulin antibodies are usually reported as international units (iu)/ ml. Abnormal levels can be seen in autoimmune thyroid disease such as hashimoto's or grave's disease, but are a nonspecific finding in many people, especially as one gets older. Having these antibodies does not necessarily mean that you have any significant thyroid disease. ...Read more
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 <1.8. ...Read more
Autoimmune: It means you have hashimoto's thyroid disease. An autoimmune thyroid disease where the body attacks itself, in this case, the thyroid gland. This is the most common reason why people have hypothyroid (low production) in the us. Make sure you see your doctor to get the thyroid level check. ...Read more
What to do if I just received my bloodwork and my anti thyroglobulin ab level is 11050. what does this mean?
Autoimmune thyroid: Thyroglobulin antibodies are a nonspecific test. It can be abnormal in many thyroid disorders including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, goiters, autoimmune thyroid disease. The level does not mean very much. You should have a free T4, TSH level done to make sure your thyroid is working correctly. ...Read more
Thyroxin binding globulin mine is 19 new dr checked it what's is the difference to thyroglobulin? Mines 19 but tg is .6.
Unusual measurements: Tbg increases with Estrogens and other conditions and increases the total t4. However, all this is irrelevant if your doctor measures free T4 and tsh, which accounts for thyroxine binding. I do not understand why your doctor is measuring tbg. To assess the thyroid status of someone who has had a thyroidectomy and is on synthroid, all you really need is a tsh. ...Read more
Thyroid ca thyroglob: If you had a total thyroidectomy followed by RAI, there should be no thyroid left-neither normal thyroid nor cancer. Thyroglobulin is made by thyroid (both normal and cancer) and therefore is a good marker for cancer recurrence. But if there is still normal thyroid left, thyroglobulin cannot be used as a tumor marker. ...Read more
