Acceptable test secondary for autoimmune thyroid disease.
Semi-Quantitative Chemiluminescent Immunoassay
Within 24 hours
Serum Separator Tube (SST), Green (Lithium Heparin), or Lavender (K EDTA).
Allow specimen to clot completely at room temperature. Separate from cells ASAP or within 2 hours of collection. Transfer 1 mL serum or plasma to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 0.5 mL)
After separation from cells: Ambient: 24 hours; Refrigerated: 1 week; Frozen: 1 year
|0.54 IU/L or less||Consistent with healthy thyroid function or non-Graves thyroid or autoimmune disease. Those with healthy thyroid function typically have results less than 0.1 IU/L.|
|0.55 IU/L or greater||Consistent with Graves disease (autoimmune hyperthyroidism).|
This assay specifically detects thyroid stimulating autoantibodies. For diagnostic purposes, the results obtained from this assay should be used in combination with clinical examination, patient medical history, and other findings.
