Re: antibodies

Like any other disease, remission is possible. Most people however, go from REALLY HIGH antibodies to lower antibodyt levels when they tend to feel better, like myself. When I get "an attack" my antibody count is very high. When I feel well, my antibodies are still high, but much lower than during the attack. Additionally, some people acheive remission by taking meds from what I understand.

Re: antibodies

Are you talking about TPO antibodies? The ones that kill the thyroid? They can disappear once the thyroid gland's function has been destroyed.
Don't know about Tg or TSI antibodies.

Tg antibodies can still be present with no thyroid gland because of the presence of thyroglobulin as a binding protein in the blood.

Edited to add: Thyroglobulin antibodies will liekly be lower inf there is no thyroid gland because thyroidblobulin is found in abundance in the thyroid gland as a storage device for T3 and T4. (The T3 and T4 in Armour is bound to Thyroglobulin in the pills because that is how it is found in the thyroid gland.)
