    Anti-thyroid antibodies test is used to help diagnose autoimmune disorders of the thyroid. Anti-thyroid antibodies mistakenly attack the thyroid gland and destroy the thyroid cells, which may lead to too much or too little thyroid hormones. Anti-thyroid antibodies can cause Hashimoto Thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease. It is also a common cause of hypothyroidism, where the thyroid gland is unable to produce enough hormones.
