Is antithyroid microsomal antibodies level of 91 a cause for concern?
Thanks for posting your query.
Microsomes are found inside thyroid cells. The body produces antibodies to microsomes when there has been damage to thyroid cells. The antithyroid microsomal antibody test measures these antibodies in the blood.
This test is done to confirm the cause of thyroid problems, including Hashimoto thyroiditis.
The test is also used to find out if an immune or autoimmune disorder is damaging the thyroid.
A positive test may be due to:
Important: A positive result does not always mean that you have a thyroid condition or that you need treatment for your thyroid. A positive result may mean that you have a higher chance of developing thyroid disease in the future.
Antithyroid microsomal antibodies may be seen in your blood if you have other autoimmune conditions, including:
Autoimmune hemolytic anemia
Autoimmune adrenal disease
Systemic lupus erythematosus
You may need an ultrasound, biopsy, and radioactive iodine test to narrow down your diagnosis. You’ll probably need blood testing every few months until your condition is under control.
I hope this answers your query.
