Thyroid Function with Antibodies Blood Test
Is it for you?
You may be experiencing symptoms of an overactive or underactive thyroid, leading to changes with your weight, mood, energy, skin and hair. Or you may have a family member with thyroid disease, and you want to see if you could also be affected. This test can help you to investigate a potential thyroid condition by testing three thyroid hormones as well as thyroglobulin and thyroid peroxidase antibodies.
- Thyroid Hormones
Autoimmunity (2 Biomarkers)
Thyroid Hormones (3 Biomarkers)
From the expert
The thyroid antibodies that appear most frequently are:
- Antithyroglobulin Antibody or TG Ab
- Thyroid Stimulating Immunoglobulin or TSI Ab
- Antithyroid Peroxidase Antibody or TPO Ab (also known as Antithyroid Microsomal Ab)
It is still possible to have raised levels of all three antibody types and not have any clinical symptoms. This result could indicate that you are at risk of developing a future thyroid condition and you should have follow-up checks to monitor your health.
