    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.

    Frequently asked questions

    To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. Needle is inserted into the vein of the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
