Hi, I’m trying to decide on treatment for Graves.
Can you tell me— how was your radioactive iodine treatment?
What side effects if any did you have? How did you tolerate it? How long did you take it for?
Why did you decide on RAI instead of anti thyroid drug, like Methimazole?
And did your doctor discuss taking ATD before RAI as -pretreatment, which some experts recommend, apparently?
I keep reading that RAI is more successful at remission and with less side effects. Yet, a couple of doctors told me they use mostly ATD. I don’t know if this is a trend or what. I may look for a new specialist.
Any feedback from you on your experience is appreciated.
