Thyroid Peroxidase And Thyroglobulin Antibodies
Read this on my lab report "low positive thyroglobulin antibodies are seen in assymptomatic population" what does that mean in real terms?
Not diagnostic: In general, lab tests are used to support a clinical diagnosis and thus a positive test per se does not provide a diagnosis without abnormal physical findings or symptoms. On many occasions, an abnormal lab test is not associated with any disease condition especially when the value is only slightly abnormal. If you do hundreds of tests on a healthy person, you will likely find something abnormal. ...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

Possible to 1st: Thyroglobulin is a test that is helpful after someone has surgery for the most common thyroid cancer. Thyroid function tests can test how well your thyroid is working. If there is concern for cancer it is helpful to get a thyroid ultrasound and then a biopsy if clinically indicated. ...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 more
My thyroid levels are "normal" but I have thyroglobulin antibodies present. I don't have thyroid peroxidase anti bodies though. What's going on?
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
Positive anti-thyroglobulin (94 iu/ml), negative anti-thyroid peroxidase. Results from Pos. ANA 1:160 speckled. 2 months ago ANA negative - not titer evident. Would thyroid be causing Pos. ANA now? ANA panel neg. To all other antibodies (ENA)
Need to examine:
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.
It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss the findings with him/her. ...Read more

What could positive thyroglobulin antibodies (out of range) mean? Peroxidase is within range but antibodies are present.
Immune binding of t: This is an immune reaction to bind thyroid hormone in or out of the cell. It can be caused by a lot of different conditions including pregnancy, other autoimmune conditions or primary thyroid disease or virus infections. It's importance for future thyroid disease depends on what is going on with you clinically at this time. ...Read more
Positive anti-thyroglobulin (94 iu/ml), negative anti-thyroid peroxidase. Normal TSH levels. Thyroid autoimmune? Cancer? Feel mostly symptom free
No indication of:
Cancer. From the information you provided, there is no reason to think you have cancer. You should have regular check ups, including thyroid function tests as you are at greater risk for developing thyroid deficiency. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

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

Doctors that specialize in thyroid disorders are endocrinologists. However, many medicine doctors from family medicine and internal medicine are very adept at helping with thyroid disease. ...Read more

My THYROID ANTIBODY Peroxidase TPO Ab is 5 [0-34 IU/mL] and my THYROID ANTIBODY thyroglobulin Tg Ab is 161 [0-40 IU/mL]. What this mean?
Depends.: You have developed an auto antibody to your own thyroid tissue. Over time, this may cause excess thyroid hormone to be secreted (hyperthyroidism), but eventually if it becomes too damaged, you may develop thyroid deficiency (hypothyroidism). Check in with provider to look for signs of either condition. ...Read more
I just got my thyroid test and noticed my thyroglobulin Ab <20 and Peroxidase =201. TSH receptor antibody 1.6. what does that signify??
See your physician: You don't tell us what your thyroid function tests showed. You have autoantibodies - antibodies that our immune system produces against our own thyroid gland. You probably have thyroid disease and see your current physician first. You may have to see an endocrinologist, a physician who specializes in the diseases of the endocrine system. ...Read more

My thyroid peroxidase ab 279.5 iu/ml while lab range 0.0-9.0 and thyroglobulin ab 42.8 TSH 1.81 tt3 1.07 ft4 0.77 trying to conceive what shuld I do?
Nothing to do: Your thyroid function is normal. The high antibodies are consistent with having autoimmune thyroid disease, but one cannot treat the autoimmune part. Sometimes people with autoimmune diseases can have an autoimmune response against their ovaries, affecting fertility, but this is not related to thyroid function. You should have thyroid levels done again once you are pregnant. ...Read more
Is there any medicine for hashimoto disease my thyroid peroxidase ab 279.5iu/ml lab normal range 0-9 thyroglobulin ab 42.8 TSH 1.81tt3 1.07 ft4 0.77?
It doesn't: You most likely already had tg antibodies before the hyalinizing trabecular adenoma diagnosis is given. Many people has autoimmune thyroid disease with tg antibodies in the background. This has nothing to do with benign or malignant potential although it could cause some problems following thyroglobulin level in the future. ...Read more
No worry: Hi. Your thyroid is experiencing some autoimmune reaction (usually an attack), but is maintaining normal function. The thyroglobulin antibodies (and TPO antibodies also) mark the autoimmune process, but do not themselves cause any harm to the thyroid (or anything else). This is usually called euthyroid Hashimoto's. No treatment is warranted until your TSH (+/- free T4) becomes abnormal. Good luck! ...Read more
