Hello everyone. I was diagnosed with overactive thyroid ('probably Graves') in March. These are my blood test results. Consultant says I will definitely have to have RAI or Thyroidectomy . I am seeing him in 2 weeks and he says I will need to make a decision. Not keen on either really. I have no TED symptoms but heard that RAi can trigger TED? Currently on 40mg Carbimazole and 3 x Propanolol per day and feel OK. I don't really understand the bloods, although have tried reading posts on here, but I gather they are improving. What are the dangers of sticking with the meds? I am really not keen on being permanently Hypothyroid. (I am 56 by the way) Any thoughts from anyone please? Thank you!!.
