Read this on my lab report "low positive thyroglobulin antibodies are seen in assymptomatic population" what does that mean in real terms?

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.

Thyroglobulin Antibodies (Definition)

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

My tsh is 0.01, t4free is 1.6, t3 (liothyronine) free is 4.5, thyroid peroxidase and thyroglobulin antibodies is 25. Can I take iodine or not, how can improve my TSH.

My tsh is 0.01, t4free is 1.6, t3 (liothyronine) free is 4.5, thyroid peroxidase and thyroglobulin antibodies is 25. Can I take iodine or not, how can improve my TSH.

Don't self medicate: Please don't manage on your own, follow up with your doctor/ endocrinologist, for your own safety, good luck

Hashimoto's thyroid: Have endocrinologist check labs for likely hypothyroid, autoimmune[self immune temporary usually low thyroid], usually transient, will go away, unsure cause. Other labs seem normal so look up hashimotos thyroiditis. Could be other, see dr.

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.

Thyroid and kidneys: Hi. You have antibody evidence of thyroid autoimmunity. It would be nice to know your TSH and free T4. Are you on thyroid hormone? You have diminished kidney function. Do you know why?

Negative result for thyroid peroxidase antibodies tpoab. Necessary to test my thyroglobulin antibodies tgab?

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.

My thyroid levels are "normal" but I have thyroglobulin antibodies present. I don't have thyroid peroxidase anti bodies though. What's going on?

Antibodies: Thyroglobulin antibodies sometimes have an effect on your well being and sometimes they don't. You need to discuss this with either your doctor or an endocrinologist. In the meantime don't panic.

What does it mean when thyroid peroxidase antibodies 50.2 IU/mL? Thyroglobulin antibodies 18.0 IU/mL?

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.

My thyroglobulin antibody is <1.0 and thyroid peroxidase (TPO) is<6 what does this mean.

Good news: It is unlikely that you have Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Many folks have low levels of these antibodies but they tend to be high in folks with this common illness. Best wishes.

Thyroiditis: Looks like you have an autoimmune thyroid problem with Hashimoto being the most likely. Hope you are under the care of an endocrinololgist.

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.

Test results for throid antibodies were Anti-thyroglobulin Ab is 137 and Anti-thyroid per oxidase Ab 200 what does this mean?

High antibodies: Your antibodies against your own thyroid are high. You need to work with your doctor to figure out why. I take my patients off of gluten and encourage them to do a comprehensive elimination diet. A functional or integrative medicine doctor can work with you to find and address root causes.

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!

Not well, enlarged thyroid, two benign nodules that are autonomous, TSH low, T4 low end of normal, thyroglobulin antibodies present - thoughts?

Suggests autoimmune: Your symptoms and lab values suggest an autoimmune inflammatory problem. You need expert evaluation and should see a qualified doctor as soon as possible. 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.

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?

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.
