As you may or may not know I have Graves' disease.
I had a thyroid storm in 2013 dropped over 2 stone in weight in under two weeks, went into carbimazole levelled off. Was great for 9 months then went hyper again. This time RAI treatment was done.
There was a little chat before hand saying you will go hypo and may gain a couple of pounds but that's normal and after when on the levo it will all be fine
No one every explained the T3 issue.
So if I get this correct. You can't stay on carbimazole because of the side effects..........
Therefore it's either RAI treatment or removal ..... but if you don't convert properly then we can't give you the correct medication to sort it So we skirt around that issue blaming all sorts of things before you have to face it head on by taking 200 mcg of levo which is the top amount.
But .... so I gather you can't stay on 200mcg because it's bad for your bones !!!!
But you still can't have T3 !!!!!!!!!
So long and short of it is, the powers that be have put me into a hypo state, I've gained 6 stone, I'm on nearly the top amount of levo, and I still feel crap!!!!
But you will not acknowledge the T3 issue!!!
Then every day this week the BBC news website has be going on about obesity !!!! Well I'm sorry but I hold the NHS responsible for my obesity!!!
They did this to me. I trusted their advice and that they knew best.
Well look what I got for trusting them. 6 stone heavier and now obese!!!!
Rant over. Thank you for listening!!!!! If I've offended anyone I apologise in advance!!!
