    Hello and welcome – hopefully, those who have had RAI and also those who have been through eye surgery can address those specific questions.

    (For those in the USA who are reading this, squint surgery = strabisumus surgery.)

    There’s much that we don’t know about antibodies and how to get them to decrease. Yes, they can spike in the months following RAI, but they usually decrease over time. Some have theorized that antithyroid meds directly affect the antibodies; others researchers believe that getting the thyroid levels stabilized will affect the antibodies.

    I totally get not feeling well and wanting relief – but definitely be careful with anyone trying to sell you products or services, especially if they are not a medical doctor!
