I live in Beijng and have been diagnosed with Graves Disease. My blood tets read

Trimester-specific reference ranges for TSH (mU/L): First trimester: 0.1 to 2.5 mU/L; Second trimester:0.2 to 3.0 mU/L; Third trimester: 0.3 to 3.0 mU/L.
T3,triiodothyronine( ) 3.23 H nmol/L (1.30-3.10)
T4( ) 148.70 nmol/L (66.00-181.00)
FT4,free thyroxin( ) 30.84 H pmol/L (12.00-22.00)
FT3( ) 10.34 H pmol/L (3.10-6.80)

I am taking thiamazole mediactin for my throid but my liver function tests are now abnormal
AST( ) 37 H U/L (13-32)
ALT( ) 43 H U/L (7-35)
GGT(Gama ) 53 H U/L (7-36)
They have doubled in the two weeks I have been taking the medication. I am also on betablockers for my heart rate and palpitations. I have been experiencing increased anxiety and I am still always hot.
Any advice please as to whether I should ask the dr for a different medication?
Many thanks. Ruth
