Actually after iodine free diet x 17 days and RAI with full body scan seems we chalk the elevated thyrooglobulin report up to lab error. Oncologist tells me they see this from time to time. Makes you wonder how many times things are not ok when lsab reports say everything is fine.

Re: Thyroglobulin elevated

yes I agree, have them repeat the test. About 8 years after TT for Hurthle Cell, my thyroglobulin came back at 89. My doctor freaked out, sent me for I131 scan, ct scan of chest and abd, pet scan and referred me to an oncologist with ties to MD Anderson. He repeated my labs after second thyrogen injection and it was normal..... All that scanning and cost for lab error...
