What is suppressed thyroglobulin?

Conclusion: Suppressed thyroglobulin (nsTg < 0.1 ng/ml) indicates a very low risk of recurrence that does not require stimulation. Stimulated thyroglobulin is beneficial with nsTg 0.1–2 ng/ml for re-classifying patients and estimating their risk for incomplete responses over a 7 years follow-up period.
