I was diagnosed with Graves' disease in 2008 and then started a course of block and replace for the next 18 months. All levels and weight returned to normal. Started feeling hyper again in March this year and have again started carbimazole (currently) 40mg. I'm due to see endocrinologist next week. I'm not keen on having the radioactive iodine treatment. I refused it last time due to the fact my children were infants and it wasn't practical. I'm concerned that this time they may say it's my only choice of treatment. My levels are still not within normal parameters despite 9 weeks on carbimazole. Anyone ever had their hyperthyroidism return after initial treatment and if so what course of action did you take? Maybe I'm being wrong about the RAI treatment but I don't want any radioactive anything in my body and vainly perhaps I don't want to be made hypo just because docs supposedly find it easier to control! Advice please.
