    It’s possible.  Usually they will check thyroid tests such as TSH, Free T3 and Free T4 but the definitive blood test is for Graves antibodies.  So yes if they do those tests, they should be able to diagnose you.  In addition to this, my Endocrinologist also did a Radioactive Uptake scan and an ultrasound.
