I was diagnosed last week with Graves' disease. I am 41 and have been trying for a baby for 9 months. I found out I have a thyroid problem purely because by gyne did hormone tests. I don't feel unwell. I have had some hair loss in the past few months around the front of my hairline.
My result were: TSH, basel <0.01mU/1 Reference 0.16 - 4.25.
FT3, 9.9pmol/1 Reference 3.6 - 6.4,
FT4 34.7pmol/1 Reference 12.3 - 20.2,
Anti - TRAK FEIA 9.0 E/ml Reference 3.3.
My Dr wants me to go on Neo-Mercazole - 30mg. I am confused as I thought I could not take this if wanting to get pregnant? I personally would like to make diet and lifestyle changes for a few months to see if it makes any difference. I don't know if I'm being stupid and risking my health by refusing the drugs? Any help is much appreciated through this very confusing time.
