Good afternoon all, I'm new here and have joined after doing a mass amount of internet trawling the past few days. I was diagnosed with Graves Disease in Feb 2015 and I'm sure like everyone else here it's been a real struggle adapting to life with this disease. I am currently on my second round of Carbimazole after relapsing late last year and I am currently on the waiting list to have surgery.
This weekend I met someone who had surgery (albeit 30 odd years ago) and lost the whole of her lower range...wouldn't be overly worried other than I'm a semi-professional singer. I'm also a single mum and so now my choice has been thrown out the window and I'm back to the drawing board as I don't want to put my voice at risk with surgery and also can't organise time away from my 4 year old daughter if I was to have RAI treatment...I also am of the stance that it's the immune system that needs repairing not the Thyroid.
I am now looking into natural treatments and diet changes but desperate to have the help of a doctor who has experience in treating GD naturally. Please could anyone suggest one? I am based in Ramsgate in Kent but am prepared to travel.
Thank you so much for your help in advance.
