A thyroglobulin test may be ordered prior to the surgical removal of the thyroid gland for cancer. It may also be ordered after the completion of treatment to help determine whether any normal and/or cancerous thyroid tissue may have been left behind. It is often ordered on a regular basis after surgery to make sure that the tumor has not come back or spread.
A thyroglobulin test also may be ordered when a person has symptoms of hyperthyroidism and/or an enlarged thyroid gland and the doctor suspects that the person may have a thyroid disorder such as Graves disease or thyroiditis. It may be ordered at intervals when someone is being treated with anti-thyroid medications (for conditions such as Graves disease), to determine the effectiveness of treatment.
Rarely it may be ordered when an infant has symptoms associated with hypothyroidism.
I am not a Dr, any opinion that I have is based on my own experience.
Any changes in my regime are always discussed with and are approved by my doctor.
