High Calcitonin, Low Thyroglobulin

From: Kellyg - 5 years 51 weeks ago

I had my thyroid removed in 1988 due to a diagnosis of MEN2. My Calcitonin levels have been on the rise for 5 years, which would typically mean a reoccurance; however, my thyroglobulin levels are within normal range. Has anyone every experienced this and, if so, what was diagnosis/treatment?

Hi Kelly,

I just happened across this site. I have not had a Thyrogobuolin test that I recall, but I do have the gene.

I suggest you check out www.iamend.org
It is a wonderful site for people with MEN, I bet you will find an answer there.

My son has the exact same thing, and his endocrinologist said that there may be a pheochromocytoma growing on or in the adrenal glands. Have they checked that for you?
