The presence of thyrogastric antibodies in first degree relatives of type 1 diabetic patients is associated with age and proband antibody status.

Abstract

A quarter of type 1 diabetic patients have thyrogastric autoantibodies (thyroid peroxidase and gastric parietal cell antibodies). Clinical, immune, and genetic risk factors help predict antibody status. First degree relatives of these patients may also frequently exhibit these antibodies. We assessed the prevalence of thyrogastric antibodies and dysfunction… (More)
