Thyroglobulin (TG) is a secretory product only of the thyroid gland. The major clinical use of serum TG measurement is to monitor, but not to diagnose, patients with well-differentiated thyroid cancers. The measurement of thyroglobulin, after thyroidectomy and ablation of the thyroid gland, is useful to determine metastasis. Deficient TG synthesis is observed in infants with goitrous hypo-thyroidism. Most patients with thyroid autoimmune disease have thyroglobulin antibody. With immunometric assays (sandwich assays), TGAB interference typically produces inappropriately low TG results, most likely caused by endogenous TG immune complexes that block one or more of the...

The measurement of thyroglobulin, after thyroidectomy and ablation of the thyroid gland, is useful to determine metastasis. Deficient TG synthesis is observed in infants with goitrous hypo-thyroidism. Most patients with thyroid autoimmune disease have thyroglobulin antibody. With immunometric assays (sandwich assays), TGAB interference typically produces inappropriately low TG results, most likely caused by endogenous TG immune complexes that block one or more of the reagent antibodies from binding endogenous TG.

  • Test Code: 30278
  • CPT Code: 8,443,286,800
  • Alternate Name: TG and ATG,ATG and TG
  • Test Instructions : Dietary supplements containing biotin may interfere in assays and may skew results to be either falsely high or falsely low. For patients receiving the recommended daily doses of biotin, draw samples at least 8 hours following the last biotin supplementation. For patients on mega-doses of biotin supplements, draw samples at least 72 hours following the last biotin supplementation.

    Please do not exercise prior to testing. It is best that your blood is taken in a rested state.

  • Fasting: Yes
  • Methodology: Immunoassay (IA)
  • Results In: 3-5

    Note: Turn around times on results are an estimate and are not guaranteed. The lab may need additional time due to holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, etc. You can contact us to discuss when your results should be ready and we will contact the lab on your behalf immediately.
