Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with graves disease about 6 years ago and have been on 10mg to 25mg carbimazole ever since then. It's getting frustrating that my condition has not been improving. My doctor has been recommeding RAI many times but I have rejected her as I was worried about the potential repercussions (eye problems, lifelong medications etc). I really hope that I am able to seek some assistance through this forum.
Here are some my queries:-
1) I have high TSH receptor antibodies (>40). Are there any ways to reduce this? Does high TSH receptor antibodies means that is harder to normalize my T3/T4 level?
2) Are there supplements that can help to normalize my T3/T4 level?
3) Which is safer? Continue with carbimazole or go for RAI?
Is it safe to live with graves disease?
I am confused and may have more questions along the way. Hope to have some advice from you guys. Thank you.
