Thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin anti body level 1.2

Hello, I was just wondering if someone could help me understand this result? I have a follow up with my gp next week, but this was flagged on my blood results as possible graves- I’m not sure how elevated this is it if it could be something if nothing. There is a family history of thyroid dysfunction and an aunt who had graves.

Thanks in advanc

You don't give the lab range for your results so we don't know how elevated it is either. labs vary and ranges vary so it would be worth adding the range for some feedback.

Ah ok thanks, I was just told it was outside normal range and could be indicative of Graves’ disease, I think the upper normal was 0.46 but cant be sure!
