My Endocrinologist would like me to start Carbimazole but as I had a multinodal goiter says it probably wont work - I dont want to go on the jounrye of Carbimazole with its links to liver problems/Radioactive Iodine with its links to breast cancer or have it removed.

I have been given some fairly dire warnings if I dont take it.  However I have been prescribed spongia by a homeopathist and since taking it all the symptoms I expereinced which I now know are connected to an overactive thyroid have completely disappeard including palpitation and sevre skin itching particularly at night, as all the surrounding symptoms have disappeared and I feel very well I am considring refusing to start treatment - has anyone else seen a homeopathist?

    Jenny I have hyperthyroidism.  I refused prescription drugs and went on a veggie and protein diet. I took Bugleweed.,Lemon balm, plant Sterols, L-Carnitine, and B-complex. After 6 weeks my TSH, T3 and T4 blood tests were normal.  I continue the Bugleweed liquid and L-Carnitine daily and try to remember the other supplements but I feel much better and would try this.  I found this vitamin and supplement regime on line and it may work for you. My doctor knows I am doing this versus prescription drugs and since my blood tests are now normal she is not objecting.  Good Luck, with your journey.

      Its good to hear from someone who has actually refused them what happened when you refused were you stilll monitored then I'm a bit anxious about out and out refusal although I have a right not to consent how did the medical professionals respond to you refusing to take them?

      Hi

      The lemon balm is in capsule form 1125mg. I take one a day.  Bought it at a health food store but will be purchasing in on line for next purchase.

      The methamazole I was prescribed made me a crazy person and I new I could not take it.  I pretty much flipped out on a phone call from my drs office so I think they just agreed to let me try the supplement route so I would calm down.  Any way I feel so much better on the supplements and I just wish MDs would educate themselves on supplements.  It is just easier to write out a script and send you on you way.I do have an apppt with an endocrinologist next month and I do believe in Drs but I also trust myself.

      Thank you for your kind words.  Just an FYI, If you take nothing else in the supplement area, take the Bugleweed it has always been listed as the no.1 supplement for hyperthyroidism. I credit it with restoring my sanity.
