MY DOCTOR KEEPS TELLING ME THAT I JUST NEED TO FOLLOW UP IN 6 MONTHS FOR ANOTHER ULTRASOUND. MY MOTHER'S SIDE OF THE FAMILY ALL HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THEIR THYROID, EVEN MY UNCLE. MY MOTHER HAD HYPERTHYROIDISIM, AT ONE TIME I WAS WEIGHING 235LBS ABOUT 8 MONTHS AGO NOW I WEIGH ABOUT 205LBS. I HAD TO CHANGE DIET AND STARTED WALKING. I JUST WANT TO KNOW IF THIS DIAGNOSIS IS OKAY OR DO I NEED TO SEE AN ENDOCRINOLOGIST.
THANK YOU FOR ANY INFORMATION.
