    Hello – While it’s preferable to do surgery with normal levels, the medical guidance from the American Thyroid Association notes that there are options including beta blockers, potassium iodide, and glucocorticoids. They also note that in this situation, BOTH the surgeon and the anesthesologist need to be experienced in dealing with patients whose levels are not under control.
