Hyperthyroid Question RE Antibodies

i realize hypoactive/hashi's test positive for antithyroid antibodies.

my question is, do people with hyperactive thyroids ALSO have antithyroid antibodies?

Re: Hyperthyroid Question RE Antibodies

The main cause of hyperthyroidism is Graves' disease, which is caused by TSI (Thyroid Stimulating Immunoglobulin) antibodies. Graves' patients sometimes also have TPO antibodies.
