So, I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism about 2 years ago. Diagnosed with graves disease about a year ago. Right now I am taking PTU (propylthiouracil) and I do 350 mg in the morning and 400 mg at night. I just kind of what to know where I am supposed to be in order to be able to get my thyroid removed. I don't know exactly where my levels are at and haven't really talked to my doctor. I'm just so confused by all this thyroid stuff. I need a better understanding! I'm also taking atenolol for my heart rate. I am not able to to do the radioactive iodine because I'm allergic to iodine / shellfish and they don't want to risk anything I guess. So that is out of the question. Ugh! I'm just so frustrated and need people I can talk to about this! Anything will help!
