The analysis of thyroid hormones and antibodies together may improve the accuracy diagnosis and clinical success.  The American Thyroid Association estimates that approximately 20 million Americans have thyroid disease, and approximately 60% of those with thyroid disease are unaware of their condition. Many patients with thyroid disorders may remain undiagnosed in many patients with asymptomatic or non-specific clinical presentations. The recognition of auto-immunity as a leading cause of thyroid dysfunction has led to the evaluation of auto-antibodies in thyroid testing.

Measuring only thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) may be misleading in a variety of circumstances, including the recent treatment of thyrotoxicosis, pituitary disease, non-thyroid illness, thyroid hormone resistance or rare, TSH-secreting tumors.  Under these circumstances, and in many other cases, the evaluation of thyroid hormones and thyroid antibodies may clarify the diagnosis of thyroid conditions and improve clinical success.
