THYROID, COMPREHENSIVE PANEL
Autoimmune thyroid disease is detected by measuring circulating antibodies against TPO & Tg. About 5-15 % of euthyroid women and 2% of euthyroid men have thyroid antibodies. These individuals are at increased risk of developing thyroid dysfunction. This assay quantitates the thyroid antibody levels as well as measures free thyroid hormone levels to assess complete thyroid function.
