Description

The thyroid gland located in the neck releases hormones that help regulate metabolism. This test is ordered to differentiate an autoimmune thyroid disorder from other forms of thyroid disease and help make treatment decisions. Autoimmune disorders occur when the body's own immune system begins attacking one's own healthy cells. Microsomes are found inside thyroid cells, hence these antibodies cause damage to thyroid cells.
