Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I just read your query and from what you have mentioned, it appears that you have antithyroglobulin antibodies.

The presence of antibodies only suggests that you may develop thyroid dysfunction in the future but as of now your thyroid gland is functioning well.

I would suggest repeating thyroid function test every three to six months.

Hope you find my advice beneficial. Good luck.
