Understanding Anti-TPO Antibody(Anti-Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody) in Trimulgherry


What is Anti-TPO Antibody(Anti-Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody) in Trimulgherry?

An Anti-TPO Antibody(Anti-Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody) test helps detect the presence of antibodies against the enzyme thyroid peroxidase that is involved in producing thyroid hormones. This test helps diagnose and monitor autoimmune thyroid disorders, particularly Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Graves' disease. It may be done routinely or as part of a Thyroid Comprehensive Package, which also includes other thyroid function tests, to provide a holistic view of thyroid health. 

What does Anti-TPO Antibody(Anti-Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody) measure?

In autoimmune thyroid disorders, such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Graves’ disease, the immune system produces antibodies against thyroid peroxidase (TPO), an enzyme found in the thyroid gland. An Anti-TPO Antibody(Anti-Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody) test detects and measures the levels of these anti-thyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO) antibodies in your blood.

TPO is found in the cells of the thyroid follicle and helps produce the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) or triiodothyronine (T3). The presence of anti-TPO antibodies indicates autoimmune activity against the thyroid gland. These antibodies contribute to inflammation and damage to thyroid cells, thus leading to thyroid dysfunction.

Frequently Asked Questions about Anti-TPO Antibody(Anti-Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody) in Trimulgherry

Q. What is hypothyroidism?

Hypothyroidism, also called underactive thyroid or low thyroid is a condition in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormones. It can be commonly caused by intake of low iodine diet or Hashimoto's thyroiditis (an autoimmune disease). Less common causes include previous treatment with radioactive iodine, injury to the pituitary gland which secretes TSH, intake of certain medicines, previous thyroid surgery, or a lack of a functioning thyroid gland at birth.

Q. Is there any risk associated with this test?

There is no risk associated with the test. However, since this test involves a needle prick to withdraw the blood sample, in very rare cases, a patient may experience increased bleeding, hematoma formation (blood collection under the skin), bruising or infection at the site of needle prick.

Q. Is there any special preparation required for an Anti-TPO test?

No, there is no special preparation required for an Anti-TPO test.

An autoimmune disorder is a condition when your body’s immune system starts to attack parts of the body such as joints or skin mistaking it for foreign bodies. Autoantibodies start to release in the body which attacks the healthy cells.

Q. What is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis?

It is an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system attacks the thyroid gland. This condition leads to hypothyroidism in which the thyroid gland starts to produce fewer thyroid hormones. A person having a family history of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis or taking too much iodine or getting exposed to radiation fall under the risk of having Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. The symptoms include weight gain, fatigue, paleness or puffiness of the face, joint and muscle pain, constipation, joint and muscle pain, thinning or loss of hair, slowed heart rate, depression, irregular or heavy menstrual periods.

Q. What is subclinical hypothyroidism?

It is an early form of hypothyroidism in which sufficient thyroid hormones are not produced by the thyroid gland. It can be seen in persons who have a family history of autoimmune disorders of thyroid or injury to thyroid or use of radioactive iodine therapy or with the use of medications containing iodine or lithium. The symptoms include fatigue, depression, constipation, weight gain, goiter, hair loss, intolerance to cold.
