Blood draw results spooks doctor

Before my upcoming appointment with my endocrinologist, I had to have my blood drawn for thyroid testing – TSH and Free T4. A few days later, my results came back good. My TSH was 0.01 ulU/ml with the Standard Range being 0.30-4.5 0.01 ulU/ml and Free my T4 being 1.3 ng/dl out of a Standard Range of 0.7-1.5 ng/dl.

As in the last post, the weird growth was stable. But something spooked my doctor and she urged that I prepare myself for another whole body scan…and that dreaded low iodine diet. Well, seeing that I should be at 115 for my size, but I’m at 125 now, I guess it’s probably a good thing. Grrr…

Good news – Ghirardelli now makes dark chocolate chips that are processed on a non-diary, non-nut, and a non-soy facility. Yay! No iodine worries there. I wonder if I could survive on a diet of this and red wine for those 7-10 diet days.
