Welcome to the forum, Sandragrimes.

I'm sorry you've had no replies. Having a second episode of hyperthyroidism is very lowering and menopause is probably not helping. On the right hand side of the page under Topics there are pinned posts on Menopause, Graves Disease and Hyperthyroidism which you may find helpful.


I was reduced ton10mg of carbinmazole and I've been told I will be having radioiodine end of January possibly early feb



If you are comfortable taking Carbimazole you don't have to agree to radioactive iodine ablatement which will make you hypothyroid within a few weeks or months.


research bugleweed, this herb balances the thyroid whether it be under or over active. as well as other things in the body especially good for the heart,

if you are going to take any natural medication always allow 2 hours away from any medication you can just take this as an infusion, it works for some people always test on the skin first to make sure you do not have a reaction to it.

rhodiola is worth researching as well.
