Hello and welcome to HCM
Hashimoto's thyroiditis is the term used when auto-antibodies are present in bleed.
These auto-antibodies are directed against various thyroid enzymes, thyroid cell receptors, or thyroglobulin.
No, Hashimoto's thyroiditis cannot be diagnosed in the absence of auto-antibodies.
Thanks and take care
