    Is this high the enough to be Hashi’s?

    Got my labs back today with this message from my doctor. We’ve had a high suspicion of Hashimotos due to symptoms and my previous heterogeneous goiter ultrasounds. My labs have always tested negative for thyroid antibodies, but I’ve had a positive ANA before.

    Just got his from my doctor:
    THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODIES 05/05/2018 (#42433148, Final)
    Note to Patient Sightly elevated at 2, positive with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. I will place referral to endocrinology, Dr. Okorodudu to discuss treatment options.

    Many of the lab reference ranges are <=35IU. 2 is such a low #!! Is it because this lab’s reference range is lower at <=1IU??
    Report Result Ref. Range Units Status Lab
    THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODIES 2 < OR = 1 IU/mL

    Usually when lab reference range are this different it’s because the labs are using test of different sensitivity levels. In your case your result is at least twice what it should be. This number cannot be interpreted using the other labs reference range.
