In brief: Thyroid antibodies

No . Fasting is not necessary for thyroid tests of any kind.
You only need to fast for tests affected by your blood glucose-related hormones, like your blood sugar test and your lipid profile ; even the lipid profile can be done non- fasting, some experts say nowadays.
