Description

Available in the UK only. TSH receptor antibodies develop when a person’s immune system mistakenly targets the thyroid gland or thyroid proteins, leading to chronic inflammation of the thyroid (thyroiditis), tissue damage, and/or disruption of thyroid function. They are heterogeneous and may either mimic the action of TSH and cause hyperthyroidism or alternatively, antagonise the action of TSH and cause hypothyroidism.

Methodology

-

When should I use

TSH receptor antibody test is often used to investigate hyperthyroidism (Graves' disease) or to monitor the effectiveness of anti-thyroid treatment and may also be helpful to understand route cause of hypothyroidism

Other Details

This test is included in BP005 Thyroid Advanced and available also as an add-on test when ordering other BP panels (see TRAb ADD-ON ONLY)
