                Thyroglobulin is a protein synthesized only in the thyroid gland. It is rich in the amino acid tyrosine, which forms conjugates with the iodine that is actively transported into the thyroid gland via the sodium-iodide symporter. The iodine-enriched thyroglobulin, the source material for synthesis of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4, is stored in the lumen of the thyroid gland. When activated by thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), the iodinated thyroglobulin is translocated into the follicular cells of the thyroid where it is hydrolyzed to release T4 and T3 into the bloodstream. When there is insufficient iodine intake for normal thyroid hormone synthesis, thyroglobulin is poorly iodinated and leaks into the bloodstream, raising the blood levels above normal. While very elevated blood levels of thyroglobulin are used as a marker for thyroid cancer, moderately elevated levels are a good indicator of an individual’s average exposure to iodine over a period of weeks. Urinary iodine can fluctuate depending on variations in daily consumption of iodine-containing foods, therefore blood spot thyroglobulin is a better indicator of longer term iodine status. Thyroglobulin levels are also raised in autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto’s disease) as the destruction of thyroid tissue releases thyroglobulin into the circulation. The reference range for thyroglobulin is 3—40 ng/mL (optimum 3—10 ng/mL). 

                    We strongly recommend that you consult your results with your Health Care Provider, GP or Doctor to know whether or not any further actions need to be carried out and get started with ample treatment if it is needed.
