    I am very satisfied with the company and regularly load my blood tests. The only pity is that you don't get a confirmation when the blood has arrived. That would be an added value...

    Product Description

    Hashimoto's disease autoimmune thyroid disease

    This involves testing anti-TPO and Anti-TG (Thyreoid. microsomal al. (TPO) and Thyreoglobulin al.)

    Normally, the immune system makes antibodies to render unwanted invaders or pathogens harmless. Sometimes something goes wrong, causing antibodies to be made against healthy cells, tissue or organs in the body. It leads to an autoimmune disease in which unintentional damage and inflammation occurs to body tissues and organs, such as the thyroid in this case.

    To detect an autoimmune thyroid disease an abnormality of the thyroid gland caused by the immune system malfunctioning.

      Always nice to know if you might be making antibodies against your thyroid, even though your TSH is still good. The doctor doesn't do this test.
