Thyroid Antibodies-Blood SST (Test Code 6105)

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.

Analytes:

• Thyroid Peroxidase Abs (TPO)
• Anti Thyroglobulin Abs (ATG)
• TSH Receptor Abs (TSI)
