Hi, I'm new to thyroid problems, diagnosed 3mths ago, age 48, British, living in America. I would really appreciate hearing your perspective as I'm not sure what out anything i should be asking my doctor/endocrinologist.
My iodine uptake test shows suggests i have a hyperactive thyroid, but symptoms are mild, maybe because I tested positive for hashimotos antibodies too? Endo thinks they are keeping each other in check. In June this year they also found a few nodules on the right lobe which are >1cm so a second scan will happen in a couple of weeks, maybe resulting in biopsy if there have been changes. I have not been prescribed any medication but i am concerned about these nodules. What experiences have others had??
My blood results are;
Thyroid peroxidase antibody 401 (std range <35)
Free T3 5.08 (std range 2.3-4.2)
TSH <0.01 (std range 0.34-4.82)
TSI, thyroglobulin antibody & Free T4 are within std range
The only other anomaly was increased platelet count in my Complete Blood Cell Count
Should i be requesting other tests or just be grateful that for now i can continue life as normal?
Thank you in advance!
