Hi I wasn't sure which forum to post on as Carbimazole was prescribed to me for Hyperthyrodism which I think was brought on by underlying Graves disease. Had hypothyroidism for 11ish years, then thyorid went haywire last year due to stress.
Now I am on block and replacement therapy. 30mg Carbimazole and 100mg Thyroxine daily. Has anyone used this method before and was it successful ?
I am trying to get my head round the benefits of this treatment, found this on the British Thyroid Foundation as they seem contradictory.
Block and replace: You continue taking CMZ, usually 20-40mg daily, or PTU, usually 200-400mg daily, to stop your thyroid gland producing thyroid hormone; and start taking levothyroxine (usually 100-150mcg daily) to replace the thyroid hormone your body would normally produce
My latest blood tests results: TSH 0.001 FT3 5.1 FT4 14.4 and I feel fine.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
