... Hello everybody , my doctor told me I have thyroid nodules almost 2 month ago.
He said my case is very rare and challenging for an Endocrinologist because the thyroid uptake scan ( I-123 ) didn't work on me due to CT scan that I had before I diagnosed with hyperthyroidism plus I was allergic to Methimazole .
By the way approximately 1 and half month ago doctor prescribed me... (0 replies)

... Hi there,
TSH is a hormone that tells your thyroid to produce T4 and T3. The higher the number, the harder it has to knock.

If you have symptoms of an overactive thyroid, then I would speak to another DR. (4 replies)
