test for Graves?

What is the test that tells if you have Graves disease? My dr checked antibodies for Hashimoto's (Thyroglobulin and Thyroid peroxidase) which were neg, but would those tests tell if I had Graves? or is it a seperate test?

Re: test for Graves?

The antibodies associated with Graves' most often are TSI (stands for thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin, I think). Tg antibodies and sometime TPO antibodies are seen as well, but the main one is TSI.
