Huh? No idea, but I'd also like to know.

In another thread where we're discussing this, and you're involved, notice we finally find out there's at least ONE doctor who's cautious about side effects of radiation. Ultrasound for other parts of the body don't require it, so I for one am avoiding my prescribed thyroid Ultrasound and looking for someone I feel is gentle enough to do a Fine Needle Aspiration test to diagnose nodules.

I've found by searching on my own that both Hashimoto's and Graves are autoimmune disorders, and that undermedicating, as when each new doctor wants to cut our dosage because of old myths that thyroid medication causes heart attacks and osteoporosis actually allows these to develop (a cumulative effedt?) and causes other debilitating effects.

Dr. Lowe online says "Educate your doctor", but haven't we all had the experience that they're afraid of us and computers?

We need to get our story straight (?) and ultra tactful. Any ideas?

Re: cystic degeneration of nodules

Are you saying that we get radiation from Ultrasound? If the answer is YES, where did you read or find out about this?Everything I read says NO. Thanks.
