    Hello – You might check out the “Treatment Options” thread in the announcements section of the forum, which includes a link to the 2011 guidance on treatment of hyperthyroidism from the American Thyroid Association and American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.

    The document goes through the pros and cons of each treatment option, and the section on Anti-Thyroid Drugs also includes recommendations on dealing with side effects (retesting, stopping meds, switching drugs, etc.)

    Hypethyroidism itself can affect liver function, so you might discuss this guidance document with your doc. (Or even get a second opinion if you don’t feel like your concerns are being taken seriously).

    Take care!
