Anti TPO test and timing of the test
My doctor has ordered an blood test called "Anti TPO Microsomal AB". From what I have found searching the internet it is a test for a thyroid auto immune disorder. Is this correct?  Also, I have crohn's disease and I am being treated with Remicade. Will the Remicade treatments or other daily meds like immuran effect the results of the Anti TPO test? She said the test wasn't urgent and to just get it done when I am at the lab for other bloodwork. Do I need to coordinate this to limit false results?

Yes, TPO (as well as Thyroglobulin Antibodies a.k.a. TgAb) is for looking at an auto-immune thyroid disorder. Guessing Hashimotos? Anyway, don't know the answer to your other questions...but wouldn't think meds would alter the antibody testing. That's a GUESS.
