Change of diagnosis, can anyone shed any light?

hi, I've not posted for a while as had a tricky pregnancy due my thyroid going overactive again and now rushed off my feet with looking after the baby.

Anyway I was diagnosed with thyrotoxicosis in 2008 and after lots of test & iodine uptake x-rays etc was told Graves disease (without the antibody) .

I was back at the endo on 3rd of Jan and after the usual blood tests got a letter to say I have a multinodular thyroid not Graves. I don't have details of the latest results.

Now am I missing something, surely a scan is required to confirm this change in diagnosis? I'm now concerned I have no choice but to go down the thyroidectomy route.

Could you clarify about "without antibody", please?

Which antibody have you been tested for? Do you mean TSI,or TPOab, or something else?


Hi Rod, I was tested twice and came back TRab negative - hope that makes sense.
