Thyriod Problems?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have had my T3 and T4 blood tests regularly, although I feel I have a swollen neck and have started to gain weight very fast and tired. My hubby and my Mum and quite a few other family members have under/over active Thyriod.

Is there other tests I could request?

Thanks

Lisa

I would ask to have the Anti-Thyroglobulin test. My T3 and T4 were always normal but when they finally ran the anti thyroglobulin, it was off the chart. I'm now on Levoxyl and dropped some weight. Good Luck!!

If your neck is swollen a good test would be an ultrasound to locate the swelling. The swelling could be in the thyroid or something else perhaps.
