Thyroid Peroxidase And Thyroglobulin Antibodies
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
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
My thyroglobulin antibody was <0.9 other thyroid test are normal tsh, free4, tpo, tg panel, but have overactive thyroid, confused!
My Tsh is 0.01,t4free is1.6,t3 (liothyronine) free is 4.5,thyroglobulin antis is1,thyroid peroxidase antibodies is 25. What abt my thyroid results?
Suppressed TSH: The lab result needs to be correlated with clinical symptoms. ...Read more
Thyroid swelling. Ultrasound heterogenous thyroid parynchema with hypervascularity. Blood test-normal tsh t4 t3 (liothyronine) etc but >1300 TPo antibodies?
Hard to say: Ive yet to have anyone NOT have elevated TPo but I havent sent many. The standard answer would be that it likley is GRAVES disease starting but if there arent a lot of symptoms and the labs are normal you wouldnt give treatment. Retesting if symptoms and at about every 3 months. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thyroid Ultrasound heterogenous thyroid parynchema with hypervascularity. Blood test normal tsh t4 t3 (liothyronine) etc but >1300 TPo antibodies?have Hypo symptoms
Elevated: TPO levels are associated with autoimmune thryroid disease/thryoiditis, for example Hashimoto disease. The thyroid US findings are also consistent with thyroiditis. Talk to your doc about next steps. ...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
Complex.: Pregnancy will raise thyroglobulin values, necessitating an increase in total thyroid production. If hashimoto's is present, thyroid function must be assessed by free T3 (liothyronine) values and TSH during pregnancy to avoid low thyroid. Many women will develop a goiter during pregnancy, but this is physiologic. But it is imperative to constantly moniter thyroid function of the mother, or the fetus can be hurt. ...Read more

Does multinodular goiter with slightly elevated thyroid antibodies possibly mean an autoimmune thyroid disease?
What does a hi thyroglobulin antigen and hi TSH indicate? The thyroglobulin antibodies and free t3 (liothyronine) and t4 were normal
Subclinical hypothyroidism: A high TSH level with normal T4 and T3 (liothyronine) levels suggest a diagnosis of subclinical hypothyroidism. Thyroglobulin levels may be normal in this setting. However I would check thyroid peroxidase antibodies and possibly TSH receptor antibodies to rule out underlying autoimmune thyroiditis. I am not sure what is meant by thyroglobulin antigen. Do you mean quantitative thyroglobulin level? ...Read more
downs,systemic rheumatoid arthritis, anemia tsh t4 normal has thyriod antibodies hyperthyroid why
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
Does a thyroglobulin ab of 42 warrant Synthroid (thyroxine) 50mcg blood test thyroglobulin ab 42iu/ml reference range <20?
No relationship: Not a very reliable test.Get a more detailed answer ›
Subclinical : The positive TPO suggests autoimmune thyroid disease, but the normal TSH and FT4 suggests that it is not affecting you. Abnormal TSH/FT4 could occur in future, but it could be far into future. A positive TPO is typical of Hashimoto's thyroiditis, but is also seen with Graves. Patients with Graves often have a positive TRAB (thyroid receptor antibody). Thyroglobulin is not helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
