Hashi and CT angiogram

Hi.
I'm going to have CT angiogram and I'm afraid of a reaction to contrast dye.Unfortunately all of them contain iodine.

Right now my TSH level is OK, I take Euthyrox25mg every day.

Do you think I can have this test??

From thyroid standpoint, this should be fine.  You are not at higher risk for an allergic reaction, but in some cases the iodine load could interfere with thryoid function (less likely b/c you are on meds already).
