Re: Enlarged thyroid and "Normal" blood results????

What a dr thinks is normal is not always whats normal for YOU.
On average, a GP has about 1 hour of training on thyroid disorders, so they generally think that if your test results are falling within the "normal" range, then you are o.k. BUT.....the range is ONLY a gauge and where in the range your results fall makes a whole lot of difference.
Did they test you for antibodies? I'll look up your previous posts to see if you posted test results before, if not post them here with the ranges.
