This is the first time I have posted on a forum, but am beyond my wits end. I was diagnosed 6 months ago with Graves. My test results are -
Free T4 >100.0
Free T3 48.3
Thyroid peroxidase antibodies 58
Anti Thyroglobulin antibodies 8
I have been prescribed carbimazole and propananol (sp?)
Prior to diagnosis I had gone up a dress size, but 6 months post diagnosis, I have gained 3 stone. I don't know what to do? Will this weight gain stabilise or reduce? What will happen if I stop taking meds? Is a thyroidectomy the answer?
Any help/ advice greatly appreciated.
