If you are euthyroid (normal tsh, normal T4) it suggests DX of autoimmune thyroid disease. Please be sure you follow up with your endocrinologist. Good luck. ...Read more

Tsh normal and have goiter. Is Synthroid (thyroxine) the right answer? Hypo symptoms. Please help

If it's a diffuse goiter, check TPO and thyroglobulin antibodies to see if it's an autoimmune goiter, which may antedate the development of thyroid function abnormalities. If it's a diffuse or Hashimoto's goiter, your thyroid function will need to be folioed over time. ...Read more
