I've been on medication for eight years and the endo is only just investigating whether I needed medication at all.
I had a thryoid ultrasound and the person doing it said my thryoid had shrunk to a small size and I didn't think anything of it as I was told there were no nodules and that the high levels of medication has caused the gland to shrink.
A couple of months later, I receive a letter from the endo saying the scan shows a bilateral atrophic thryoid gland and that I could have had thryoiditis at the onset.
I don't know what this means. I have been tested for hashimotos and I don't have that but I don't understand what the above means. Can anyone explain?
Thank you in advance
