Hi I'm desperately wanting some advise. I’ve been on 20mg carbimazole since the beginning of November. My recent levels are:
T4 13.5 (9.0- 23.0)
T3 4.0 (2.5- 5.7)
TSH 0.01 (0.30- 4.20)
I have a holiday booked to Crete in the middle of May for a week. I don’t worry too much about the flight, I’m just thinking if I’ll be ok to tolerate the heat. I’m planning to have a consultation with my GP and Endo regarding my trip.
Did anyone go on holiday to a hot temperature country while having Hyperthyrodism/ Graves?
Shall I cancel my trip?
I went to Portugal, and was fine - although Crete in May will probably be warmer. My thyroid levels were still over range, but I felt great after the break. Perhaps try to keep out of the sun during the middle of the day, and aim for a relaxing time rather than full-on dashing about. Make sure you’ve always got water available, as you may get thirsty very quickly. Don’t forget that you may need to declare your condition to your insurer.
Thanks for your reply Valarian, you’re right I should declare my condition as well!
