Hi in 04 I was treated for graves disease with Carbimazole and then levothyroxine. Which had worked until recently. I had a annual review in June and was told my thyroid was over active and to have a repeat test in 2 months which is showing it is still over. Can graves disease return? I don't know what the numbers of my T4 and T3 are the dr never said and I didn't know you could ask. I'm waiting to see a specialist but the Dr has started me on 10mg of carbimazole while I wait. I have been very ill over the years and have been in icu 3 times to cut a long story short and to not bore you with all the details I have memory loss and really can't remember exactly how the treatment works and symptoms ect. My worry is that I'm now only left with 55cm of bowel so no one knows how much of any medication I absorb. Is there any other way of taking carbimazole than in tablet form? I receive all of my nutrition through artificial feed which is supposed to maintain my weight but I'm still loosing so I guess that's my thyroid. Recently cramps have been unbearable I'm not sure if that is because I'm dehydrated or if that could be related to a overactive thyroid too.
