This test is to monitor the effectiveness of anti-thyroid therapy.

TSH Receptor Antibodies (TRAb) are antibodies that are directed against the TSH receptor – knowing levels may further help in the investigation of thyroid disease.

The TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is a hormone manufactured in the pituitary gland (found in the brain). It s role is to stimulate thyroxine production in the thyroid gland (found in the neck). A high level within a health screening is associated with an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism) and a low level is found if the thyroid gland is over-active (hyperthyroidism). Changes in the TSH level alone can indicate underlying thyroid problems even if the thyroxine levels are normal.
