    Hi Tisha,

    After the first couple of days have passed, your daughter will be able to attend school after RAI.

    Believe me, if there were anything other than ATDs, RAI or surgery that would resolve hyperthyroidism, we would have ALL chosen it. Nothing reduces thyroid hormone levels other than these three treatments.

    There are holistic treatments that can ease symptoms, but hyperthyroidism is the problem and must be resolved. In the days prior to these three treatments being available, fully 50% of Graves’ patients died from hyperthyroidism. It’s nothing to play with.

    Your daughter is old enough to have a say ~ surgery is another valid option, and you would be perfectly welcome to choose that (unless there is some other risk factor for her undergoing surgery).
