Sorry for being thick, but a I've a few related questions due to my lack of understanding of (my) Graves Disease:
What is 'block and replace' and why do it? Why not just block using different doses of Carbi?
How are 'desired' levels for people reached?
How do you know when your levels are right?
I can't really get my head around the whole T3, T4, TSH thing. The only thing I understand is that TSH level being too low to measure is 'bad' and that very high levels of (erm - trying to remember here) T4 are 'bad'?
I just know that I don't want to have either the RAI or surgery that my Endo is pushing for (or to be gaining so much weight)!!
Is there an 'Graves Disease for Dummies' guide? I'd like to think that I'm a fairly intelligent woman, but my mind fogs over when reading up about this...
Sorry for long post.
