Carbimazole and have recently Been put onto propylthiouracil tablets ( carbimazole alternative ). Radioactive iodine or a full thyroidectomy have been advised but I don't fancy either!! Has anyone had the iodine treatment?
I have managed well on carbimozole these past years only staying on them till my levels came down and I have been without them for a few years. But the doctors are concerned now that I can't tolerate carbimazole anymore. I eat a good diet, practice yoga and I'm a very positive happy person and I take care of my health as naturally as I can. So the thought of having radioactive iodine in my body isn't very appealing!! And I don't fancy being underactive.
I am new to this site and have read some interesting comments on having a leaky gut and gluten free diets in connection to auto immune disease
Any information and advise would be greatly received.
