    Unhappy Thyroglobulin 2nd gen levels high

    My doc recently found my thyroid is enlarged i have ultrasound tomorrow but bloodwork was already completed and the results are this:
    Thyroglobulin Ab,ECL. 13. Normal range 20 iu/ml
    Thyroglobulin 2nd generation. 7.61 Normal 0.05. - High
    Free thyroxine. 1.2. Range. 0.7-1.8 ng/dl
    thyrotropin(tsh) 1.6. 0.4-5.5 MIU/L
    Free T3. 2.8. 2.3-4.2 pg/mL

    Re: Thyroglobulin 2nd gen levels high

    As far as I understand thyroglobulin measures thyroid tissue, and if your thyroid is enlarged, it would make sense that you have a high level of thyroid tissue. I don't think it means anything much in your case.
