Very high Anti-Thyroglobulin Abs blood test results? What does this mean, what can I do to reduce this figure, or can I leave it as it is?

My Anti-Thyroglobulin Abs blood test result is: 623.5 (should be less than 115)

My Anti-Thyroidperoxidase abs test result is normal at: 13.3 (should be less than 34)

Are either of these results indicative of what is the cause of my hypothryoidism, are these the auto-immune disorders I read about on here?

Sorry for all the questions but I don't seem to get any answers from doctors or my endocrinologist?

Redhotchestnut, thyroglobulin antibodies are positive for autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto's) which has caused your hypothyroidism. Many members find 100% gluten-free diet helps reduce Hashi flares, symptoms and antibodies.

Thanks for both for your replies, that makes it a bit clearer for me. The endo mentioned "Graves" to me, so I was a bit confused with blood results and nobody seems to have picked this up of done anything about it, but it's obviously not too much to worry about.

Is there any kind of particular medication that is perhaps better for Hashimoto's?

Like is NDT better than Levo? Or the same, what about Levo and T3?


For graves they have to test TRab antibodies also, as these are positive for Graves
