Description

Thyroid Antibodies tests are used to determine if a person has an autoimmune disorder related to their thyroid. Autoimmune disorders occur when the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks its own tissues, and in the case of thyroid antibodies tests, these tests measure the amount of antibodies in a person’s blood. High levels of antibodies can indicate an autoimmune thyroid disorder called Hashimoto’s thyroiditis or Graves’ disease. These tests are important when used to assess an individual’s health, as if left untreated these autoimmune disorders can lead to an overactive or underactive thyroid, causing fatigue, weight gain, and other problems. Taking a thyroid antibody test can provide a doctor with insight into the health of a patient’s thyroid, enabling them to diagnose and properly treat any issues.
