    Hi, I was diagnoised in March 96 with graves. It’s really
    sucked since then. I have done the radioactive iodine
    and I am now taking a synthetic hormone called
    levothroid. I’ve been taking it since June. I feel really
    tired a drug out now, and I have gained alot of weight
    I contacted my doctor last month ( July) and told him
    how I felt. He checked my blood and said my levels
    are within normal limits.??? I am contacting another
    doctor for a second opinion just so know that I’m doing
    everything I can for my health. I noticed that alot of
    diet pills can’t be used by us. I was also told that it
    might take 12 weeks or more for this med, I’m taking
    ( levothroid )to work is that true? I live in Bakersfield , Ca. and
    I don’t know anyone who can relate to this stuff, I am
    sure glad I found this spot!!!!!!!! Thanks Gail.
