Hi all, I have posted a couple of times but still a newbie when Graves is concerned. Seen my endo consultant in April, diagnosed as having Graves’ disease (antibodies present) told to increase my carbimazole to 40mg for 6 weeks and then back to 20mg. Also told to stop propanol gradually.
GP put me on iron tablets x 3 a day and in the meantime consultant wrote to GP surgery saying my iron very low?
Lots of tests done on full bloods, thyroid results and last visit to GP surgery said all back to normal.
I am far from normal whatever normal is these days. My head is all over the place and the lady Dr signed me off work and this has helped me spend time looking after me!
Sorry I am going on! Back to see the consultant in September and he talked about RDI or surgery? What is the general process in the NHS in the UK? I am far from being fixed and daily feel like I am being strangled by my thyroid so I know things aren’t completed “normal” even though my bloods differ.
Also B12 pernicious anaemia - injections every 8 weeks
Anaemic - on 3 x ferrous fumarate 210mg
Carbs - 20mg daily
Also back on propanol 10mg take 1/2 daily (helps enormously with my anxiety)
PS - seeing gastroenterologist in July due to testing for eosinophillic gastrointestinal disease
What should I expect to be the next stage if anything?
