Re: what are best tests to show graves

Alana, your son's free t-4 and free t-3 should be tested again. His tsh has gotten lower and lower. They can test the antibodies too. The tsi. Also a thyroid scan shows Graves. Sounds like it from the symptoms, and since it runs in families, also,it's not good for the heart to be hyper. Did the heart problem come the same time as the other symptoms? What is cardio myopathy, if you don't mind me asking?
