Hi ... I have a family history of Graves' disease. I recently had routine blood work done and askedt doctor to test my thyroid antibodies. She tested me with a thyroid antibody panel test. My question is is this test sufficient enough in testing for Graves' disease? I mentioned the tsi test and she said she thought it was included in the panel but I don't think so. Anyway the test came back fine but I'm just worried she didn't order the right test. Is the thyroid panel antibody test enough to detect graves?thank u
Thyroid antibody test is a diagnostic test for graves disease and is most reliable. Its is necessary to confirm its presence even if other tests for graves are positive(according to WHO guidelines) . So dont worry thyroid antibodies panel is sufficient enough for you.
