Over the course of a yr. my TSH has been dropping. However, my FT4 is dropping as well. TSH has gone from .67 to .14 (range .34 - 4.82) FT4 has gone from .96 to .81 (range .59 - 1.17)
TSH level indicates hyperthyroidism, but my symptoms are either hypothyroid or sometimes there doesnt seem to be any symptoms.
Thyroid ultrasound shows nodules on slightly enlarged thyroid.
Hashi's test came back neg.
Thyroxine total came back norm 9.6 (range 4.5 - 12.5)
The Endo wants to do radioactive iodine uptake or remove my thyroid completely. This seems excessive since we have not explored other possible reasons for my thyroid levels.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there something else I could be looking for? Is there another test I could request from my Endo? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!!
