*any and all help or suggestions are welcome* I am so confused and frustrated.
I have posted a couple threads here, but I just picked up the results from my UltraSound I had on 4/2 with the Endocrinologist. Based on these results she sent me for an I 123 Thyroid Uptake scan which I had yesterday and completed this morning. Waiting for the results of that and also more blood work. She is testing my Tgab, Cortisol, Insulin and Glucose.
I have Hypothyroid Symptoms. Nearly every symptom but bloodwork is all normal:
SH 2012 ~ 0.970 ( 0.350-5.500)
TSH ~ 0.750 uiu/mL (0.350-5.500)
Free T4 ~ 1.0 ng/dl (0.7-1.5)
Free T3 ~ 3.4 pg/mL (2.3-4.2)
Ferritin ~ 6.1 ng/ mL (10.0-291.0)
TPOAB ~ <10 IU/mL ( <35 )
My Ultrasound results are as follows. (I have 2 very large nodules and 2 nodules that note INTENSE Vascular flow) All measurements are in cm.
Right lobe heterogeneous Width 3.5 ~ Depth 1.5 ~ Length 4.5 mild to moderate Vascular Flow
Isthmus heterogeneous Depth 0.3
Left lobe heterogeneous Width 1.9 ~ Depth 1.7 ~ Length 4.2 Mild to moderate vascular flow
Left inferior heterogeneous, hypoechoic, irregular margins width 0.9 ~
depth 0.8 INTENSE vascular flow
Left Middle heterogeneous, spongiform width 1.3 ~ depth 1.2
Left sup hypoechoic width 1.3 ~ depth 1.2
Right heterogeneous/isoechoic, irregular margins width 1.3 ~ depth 0.7 ~ Length 1 INTENSE vascular flow.
Can anyone help me read these results?
Should I be worried about Cancer?
Should I be concerned I have all the symptoms of Hypothyroid with no positive test results?
Could this be secondary Hypothyroid?
Why do I have nodules?
Dr.'s notes say I have no sign of Hypothyroid yet. She says that if the I 123 test comes back abnormal she will biopsy me, but if not she only wants to see me back in 6 months. I already have another appointment made with a different Dr. for a second opinion and as a back up plan.
Thank you in advance for helping.
