TSH 0.394 T4 1.10 and T3 3.4 Having uptake scan tomorrow to see if my nodules are interferring...I guess---the res of story below...the nodules were cold before....my sis and dad have hashi's

Help! Two years ago I was diagnosed with a multinodual thyroid. I had an FNA and they were benign. I had a followup ultrasound and they measured right... 1.5 x 0.9 and left 1.9 and 1.2. That was in March 2008. Today I had a followup ultrasound and they measured right... 1.8x1.2 and left 2.7 x 1.8. Is this significant growth in a year in a half? Also, my TSH is normal but the T4 or T3 is slightly off. My doc thinks I am heading towards hyper and has ordered an uptake scan for next week. My question: Is this a huge growth in the size of my nodules? Thanks really worried here

Hello anonymous, we asked Dr. Theo Friedman, who specializes in thyroid issues your question and here was his response:

"It doesn't sound like a major growth and an uptake and scan is reasonable.
You could get another biopsy to alleviate your concerns."

You can learn more about Dr. Friedman by checking out his profile on empowher.com. You may also find some of the interviews with him helpful as well. Will you update us on what you find out?
