Thyroid labs

I just got a call from my sons Endo. His yearly bloodwork showed an elevated level of thyroid auto anti-bodies and a slightly elevated TSH level. His free thyroid hormone was normal. She mentioned the possibility of Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and said that he would have to get quarterly blood work now, instead of yearly.
