Thyroid questionJune 4 2012 at 8:41 PM

About 6 months ago, during routine bw that my clinic requires every year, I found out that I have subclinical hyperthyroidism (TSH 0.26, but normal T3 and T4). My general doctor is very interested in thyroid issues, so she re-ran the tests a few weeks ago for me and they came back the same... TSH 0.27 and normal T3 and T4.
She agrees that no treatment is needed, but says that a thyroid ultrasound could give more information as to what type of hyperthyroidism it is or something like that... I can't exactly remember her reasoning. She tends to like tests.
So I have a question for those of you with some sort of thyroid issue... is a thyroid u/s really necessary?
Thanks for your help!
