Thank you for posting your query.

I understand your concern.

A slight elevation in the globulin levels, in the setting of an autoimmune thyroid disease is not unexpected.

All the other liver function tests are within normal limits.

You can rest assured that it is a part of your existing problem.

Continue with your medication for thyroid as well as anemia.

Your TSH is within normal limits.

Hope this answers your query effectively. Please do write back if you have additional queries.

Wishing you good health.
