Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes rare macrophages can be normal.

Macrophages are present in inflammatory response.

So there may be a hint of autoimmune thyroid disease.

Did you have any thyroid antibody panel done in blood test?
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
