I'm looking for opinions and facts or just some good old fashion advise!
I was diagnosed with an over active thyroid about 4 years ago and after 6 months of a daily dose of 5mg Carbimazole it seemed to get it back under control.
At the end of last year, I felt my symptoms coming back and yes the overactive thyroid was back.
February I started on 5mg Carbimazole, April increased to 10mg and last week moved on to 20mg.
My current levels:
T4 34 NMOL/PMOL
T3 12 NMOL
The doctors is saying if these levels don't improved by October, I need to look at the Radioactive Iodine treatment.
I don't really fancy the Radioactive Iodine as I have three young children and I don't fancy having to have to take a daily tablet for the rest of my life.
My questions really is - Does anyone know any or alternative treatments or is this really my only option?
Thank you in advance.
