Thyroid Antibodies are important markers to assess especially if you suspect thyroid abnormalities. Generally, the presence of thyroid antibodies suggests the presence of an autoimmune thyroid disorder and the higher the level, the more likely that is. Levels of autoantibody that rise over time may be more significant than stable levels as they may indicate an increase in autoimmune disease activity.

A physician will generally order thyroid antibodies if they see an abnormal TSH or free T4 test results. Additionally, a physician may also order a comprehensive thyroid assessment through NutriPATH test code 1114 if signs and symptoms of a low or high level of thyroid hormones or the presence of a goiter, especially if the cause is suspected to be an autoimmune disease.
