    Enlarged Thyroid

    I had a thyroid ultrasound due to a prominent thyroid. The results were that it was enlarged and indicates thyroiditis. Got referred to an endocrinologist who requested another ultrasound as they couldnít see the results. They are now saying itís not enlarged and that it is 11 cm, is this normal? Having so many symptoms of thyroid problems.

    Re: Enlarged Thyroid

    My doctor says my TSH is a little higher than normal (a fraction above the upper range) but did not recommend that I take medication for hypothyroidism because I have no symptoms.

    My weight is as low as it can go without being underweight (BMI-18).

    My body temperature seems to be well regulated.

    I don't suffer from lack of energy.

    This is an example of my numbers being a little on the high side but no symptoms.

    On the other hand some people could have symptoms that are caused by something other than thyroid.
