    THY PEROX AB and THYROGLOB AB

    I was in the normal weight range till 8 yrs ago and then suddenly i started gaining weight, loosing strength, and feeling tired all the time.. i had all symptoms of Hypothyroidism... But my blood results for T3 and T4 were normal. This time i my doctor ordered these 2 tests as well and they were out of range (high)... Please tell me what these mean..
    Thank you

    I am answering offhand here, but these were among my initial tests from my family doctor and they show your antbody levels. Mine were both high, which can indictate Hashimotos if I am not mistaken. I am waiting for my TSH, Free T3 and 4, etc.

    Re: THY PEROX AB and THYROGLOB AB

    Your title lists TPOAb and TGAb test names. These thyroid antibody tests are the most accurate blood identifiers for Hashimoto's thyroiditis. There is a chance that they will provide a false negative, but 80% of Hashimoto's patients test positive in the TPOAb tests. 60% test positive in the TGAb test. The only 100% identification method for Hashimoto's is a biopsy of the actual thyroid tissue.
