    I’ve was diagnosed with Graves Disease about 3-4 years ago. My previous endo. treated me with tapazole and synthroid and suggested atomic cocktail. I held out and was mostly ok. Would get my medicine adjusted periodically when my levels went up or down. For medical insurance reasons, I’m no longer seeing that doctor. My cuurent endo wants me to do the atomic coctail in about two weeks. Claims my health is really threatened. ( I have other medical problems which make me susceptible to osteoporisis and heart disease. Right now I’m on no medication – my endo wanted to see just how bad my levels were. I don’t know what to do. He is really pushing for the atomic coctail ASAP. Anyone have any suggestions? Right now, in spite of being Hyperthyroid, I’m very overweight. The prospect of getting even more overweight is very depressing. Help! Thanks.
