PLEASE HELP THIS OLD MAN OF 70 YEARS ,AS I AM IN TROUBLE .REPORTS ATTACHED.WHAT IS THE REMEDY OF ANTI Thyroglobulin SO HIGH
Based on the feedback given by some Drs I have done for my 62 year old wife Anti- TPO Antibody test and also repeat TSH, FT3 and FT4 tests on 28/06/2014. Diagnostics Lab have also MEASURED Anti-Thyroglobulin.
While all the test results are OK,Result of Anti-Thyroglobulin IS NOT OK,
TSH is 4.76 µIU/mL,
Free T3 is 3.14 pg/mL ,
Free T4 is 0.89 µIU/mL ,
Anti-TPO is 38.6 (<60 U/ml : Anti-TPO Negative),
Anti-Thyroglobulin is 161.0*(Too Much)[>=60 U/ml: Anti-Tg Positive]
.I DO NOT KNOW THE IMPLICATION OF ANTI TG SO MUCH POSITIVE AND WHAT IS THE REMEDY
ORIGINAL CASE HISTORY OF THE PATIENT
Without any symptom my wife(62 years) went for T3, T4,THS test as a routine check up ON 28/03/2017
1)Although TSH Level is Elevated is 7.87 uIU/ml(Normal Range-0.27-4.90),
2)T3 Level is Normal at 1.40 ng/ml (Normal Range-0.80 -2.0)
3)and T4 Level is Normal at 11.35.ug/dL(Normal Range-5.1-14.1).
Endocrinolist was consulted.The doctor opined it as Subclinical Hypothyroidism(beginning) and recommended Thyroxine Supplement.(Thyronorm 25 mcg) and advised to see him after 3 months of taking medicine and repeat tests.
As a precautionary measure AFTER 28 DAYS ONLY I DID a REPEAT TEST FOR TSH ONLY in the same laboratory AND SURPRISINGLY TSH WAS
FOUND TO BE ONLY 0.07 (Normal Range-0.34-5.60)
I again went to the doctor concerned and he advised to STOP THYRONORM
NOW I AM SEEKING YOUR ADVICE REGARDING THE NEXT COURSE OF ACTION .
