Does a person without a thyroid have the same thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin and anti thyroglobulin antibody levels listed in the normal lab range?
Does a person without a thyroid have the same thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin and anti thyroglobulin antibody levels listed in the normal lab range..?
This is the first time an endocrinologist has ever tested those on me, and I was confused not having a thyroid.
About thyroid antibodies;
Hello and thank you for asking!
I have gone carefully through your concern.
After thyroidectomy, the antibodies get within the normal ranges ( if they have been high) within one year.
So, they are excpected to be within the normal ranges after 12 years, it would be abnormal if they would be high.
You do not need to worry about it.
