Hi, recently I posted that my TSH was up to 8.4 and I was going to follow up with GP. He ran more blood tests (mid day) and this time the TSH was 5.25 high range of 5.01. My Vitamin D was 26.8 range 30 -100 IU/ml, TPO 234 High, T3 free was 3 range 2.0-4.4 PG/ML, T4 free .9 range .8-1.5 ng/dL. My thyroid uptake scan after taking Iodine-123, 6 hr uptake is below at 4.8 % normal range 5-19% and 24 hr uptake is below at 8.3% with normal range 12- 33%. Is this enough for treatment? On another note, Ultrasound showed Hashimotos on both lobes and also three nodules 2 of which they think are parathyroid adenomas. I was diagnosed Hyperparathyroid just last year and had one parathyroid removed they didn't mention these others then and I'm a bit confused because I always thought it took years for them to form and I think I read that 3-4 adenoma's are rare, so if two more are bad then that leaves possibly one normal one and is it most likely bad too? Anyone ever had this to happen to them. I did ask the Radiologist if they looked cancerous and he said he didn't think so, not sure where to go from here. Im scheduled next week for a parathyroid scan (sestamibi). Any suggestions?
