Wow – I can’t beleive your doctors let you go for so long. I’ve been told
that the PTU which I take (It must be similar to what you were given)
does a great job in controlling everything – but it DOES promote
osteoporosis. An over active thyroid is also a strain on your heart.
I am getting the RAI on Nov. 5. I feel that to rid myself of this problem
and all it’s bad side effects is worth a short period of adjustment.
I have faith in my Endro that he will QUICKLY get me to NORMAL so I can
just get past this! Take care of the problem – not the symptoms!
As for the weight, if you are seeing a good Endocronologist, he should
also have a dietitian on his staff to work with you.
