Re: Calcitonin Test............
It was part of the pathology report when I had my thryoid removed.
It think it is a tumor marker for Medullary Thyroid cancer..
But if you still have a thyroid.. it really would not test any thing.
as far as the dairy products go.. i know when getting ready for Rai.. that you have to avoid Dairy and Iodine.. (go on a low iodine diet) for a couple weeks..
But weird that your mom got those recommendations.. my father also had thyroid cancer over 40 years ago... (i dont know what kinda either, and the records were burned) and he did not have the same recommendations.)
