    I have had 3 endocrinologists, all of them not supportive of drug therapy. They all preferred a more permanent fix to Graves’ with surgery or RAI, since I was told hypothyroidism is easier and safer to control.

    Now I have had Graves’ 3 times and agree with the permanent fix idea. The problem was I never tried the long-term drug therapy, more than 2 years, since I didn’t know about it. I was at high risk to come out of remission which I have done 3 times. Everyone is different but I know of 2 others patients who were also pressured to chose a permanent fix and not try drug therapy. I guess it depends on where you live.
