Thyrogen Anyone?

Hi,
Just wondered if anyone out there knows the situation with the whole Thyrogen shortage.  Looked on line of course and couldn't find anything really telling.  Hopefully, I won't even have to bother with any of it when I see my endo to go over blood test results on August 26th.  It is still a concern because I do not ever want to go off meds!  Let me know.  Thanks.

right now the status is the same... its still tight on getting it available. There's many people working on this and trying to get it resolved.

I am waiting also and was wondering the same thing. I'm praying and praying because my doc is letting me slide till January and then after that......going off meds. I do NOT want to do that ever again. I can't. I can't ever go back to that dark, horrible place. Please SOMEONE FIND THE THYROGEN!

I mentioned the shortage to the endo and the technician that did my WBS and both were kind of like "didn't know it was an issue".  Got the thyrogen and it made it so much easier.  So at least in Southern California with an HMO it seems to be available.
