I have showed some signs of thyroid disease like being always tired, and I've showed some symptoms that come and go?
I've had thyroid issues in the past and am having clinical signs again. My dr recommended checking bloodwork but she only checked my TSH (it's normal). Is this the normal/best way to monitor for thyroid disease?
Hi, my TSH levels are 1.3 my Doc says this is normal, they won't do FT3 and FT4. I am showing all signs of thyroid disease, it runs in family too.
Maybe not: You don't say what is wrong with your thyroid, and what medications you are on. If the sx in your neck are from an enlarged thyroid (goiter), the medications may or may not help. It would be important to figure out exactly what is causing your symptoms. Usually a modest size goiter does not cause symptoms.

Least of worries: Hyperparathyroidism is quite common (one person in 1000 will get it during a lifetime) and makes a person quite ill.

If you are hyperparathyroid, know all your options -- some folks do choose observation.
