The thyroid function test results are within normal limits

The thyroglobulin antibody test result is positive but the negative thyroid

microsomal antibody result suggests that the likelihood of autoimmune

thyroid disease (e.g. Hashimoto's or Graves' disease) being present is low.

Sometimes thyroglobulin antibodies are used to determine the success of

treatment of thyroid cancer - if the level falls, treatment is more likely

to have been effective, as a rule.

Other conditions and situations can lead to an elevation in the

thyroglobulin antibody level - such as Type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis

and pernicious anaemia - you may wish to discuss this finding with your

usual doctor.

  • This doesn't make a lot of sense....

    "Thyroglobulin Antibody *120.4 IU/mL 0-115(Negative)"

    I would check that.... 124 is well out of range if 115 is the top of the range, so would not be negative!

  • they put negative then said it was positive just don't know what this means?
