Thyroglobulin Antibodies (TGAB) Testing
How to check your Thyroglobulin Antibodies levels with a home fingerprick blood test kit
What Is A Thyroglobulin Antibodies Test For?
Thyroglobulin is a protein made and used in the thyroid gland. Its function is to make the two crucial thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4).
Since thyroglobulin occurs naturally in the body, usually your immune system does not produce high levels of antibodies against it. However autoimmune diseases can cause high levels of thyroglobulin antibodies.

13.0% of people tested have Thyroglobulin Antibodies levels which are too high.

Note what is normal for you may differ for your age and gender.
Women tend to report higher thyroglobulin antibodies blood levels in their blood than men.
As many as one in four women tested have high levels of Thyroglobulin Antibodies
of people have Thyroglobulin Antibodies blood levels in the normal range. Do you?
Are you in the 87.0% with normal results?
What If Thyroglobulin Antibodies Test Levels Are High?
Note that it is possible to test positive for thyroid antibodies even when healthy. Their presence tends to increase with age and are more common in women.
Mild to moderately elevated levels of TGAB may be found in a variety of diseases.
However, thyroid autoimmune diseases usually lead to significantly increased concentrations.
Usually, the higher the level of TGAB the more likely an autoimmune thyroid disease is present.
If there is no apparent thyroid dysfunction - i.e. TSH, FT4 and FT3 levels are normal - you may choose to track your health over time to ensure thyroid dysfunction does not develop.
