I am dumbfounded after researching for so many... (6 replies)
I recently had my yearly exam and blood work done. While I was in the exam room, my GYN told me that my thyroid was big. She said she was going to order some lab tests. So now my lab results are in and all she said was that she is referring me to an endocrinologist. I asked for the results to be faxed to me, but I have really no clue what to make of it.

(Not every symptom that can be caused by it, will be caused by it 100% of the time.) Antibodies don't cause symptoms; only low or high thyroid hormone (T4/T3) levels do that.
It goes back to what I... (9 replies)
