Thyroid scan

Hi all

I went for a thyroid ultra sound today and everything was normal, all my neck area was checked nothing found.

It's a relief for me personally as after loosing my mum I was concerned about the big c.

I mentioned elsewhere I'm getting nowhere really with my GP dismissing the antibodies issue as all my levels are normal!

I see her in two weeks again to discuss the bliss she took yesterday.

I really want to speak to an endo though, as it seems the nhs want to wait until I'm actually ill, rather than preventative measures now!?

Daz78,

There are no preventative measures your GP can take to prevent you becoming hypothyroid. High antibodies are a predictor of future hypothyroidism but it's not a certainty you will become hypothyroid. There is no cure for Hashimoto's which causes 90% of hypothyroidism. Treatment is for the low thyroid levels it eventually causes. Many people have found that 100% gluten-free diet is helpful in reducing Hashi flares, symptoms and eventually antibodies and this may slow progression to hypothyroidism.

Hey clutter thank you! Hope you're doing ok?

I've started to go gluten free now to see how I get on, with a view to retest in a few months time.

I have a sore throat at the moment that just won't seem to budge.. something or nothing? Who knows I guess.

I'm just glad my nutritionist told me to get my T3 level checked and I did a full thyroid check, I would never have known about any of this otherwise. I only saw her to get my nutrition sorted for running the Berlin Marathon in September!

Incidentally if anyone is interested I've started a blog darrensjourneytoberlin.co.uk in regards to my Marathon.
