What tests do you need for Graves Antibodies?

I am having problems with my eyes, they hurt, dry, burning, itching, one has a drooping eyelid, the other is bulging a little. The MRI showed irritation. I am trying to figure out if this is just from my thyroid being so whacked out over the last couple of months or if I actually have Graves antibodies. I have been diagnosed with Hashi's. My Thyroid Peroxidase TPO Ab was 188 but the Antithyroglobulon Ab was <20. Do any of these show Graves? I have been having symptoms of both hypo and hyper.

Re: What tests do you need for Graves Antibodies?

The antibodies which cause Graves' are TSI - Thyroid Stimulating Antibodies.

Yes you can have both Hashi and Graves. I have antibodies for both, it seems more and more do.
