Thyroid Antibody Screen

Thyroid Antibody Screen

Thyroid disease is commonly (though not exclusively) caused by an autoimmune process whereby the body begins to attack itself.
The two main types of autoimmune thyroid disease are Hasimotos thyroiditis (also known as hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid) and Graves disease (hyperthyroidism or an overactive thyroid).
This test uses ELISA technology to measure autoantibodies to thyroid peroxidase (TPO) a type of antibody produced when the body begins to attack its own thyroid gland. Anti TPO antibodies are produced in both Hashimotos thyroiditis and Graves disease and are unequivocal evidence of autoimmune thyroid disease.
