Customer Question

I was diagnosed with Hashimotos over two weeks ago. I had an ultrasound done and I don't have any nodules and my thyroid is of normal size, my TSH is elevated and my thyroid anti bodies are 104. However they did note on my ultrasound that they detected lymph nodes up to 8mm on the left size "likely reactive". Should I be concerned?
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: My endo said that there is nothing to be concerned with. I am on a lot of different supplements and on .25mg of tirosint. I was also on antibiotics at the time of the ultrasound.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No.

I have a slight sore throat in the morning (dry throat), but that's about it. My energy has been elevated since I started eating better, taking my thyroid medication and supplements.

Hi there.
Thank you for your question.

8 mm nodule is not something that I would be concerned about at all.

This can happen due to infections or even normally in some people as well.

I would not be concerned at all.
