Re: New Hypo Diagnosis - advice please
What was the treatment for your initial diagnosis of Graves? I too have Graves disease and was put on Tapazole for about 18 months. Mine did not return quickly as most do but recently I have many symptoms of hyper even though my levels are in range.
I also have four nodules, one that is cold but has a blood supply so I am opting for surgery. The Endo that I went to years ago warned me about RAI since there is really no way to tell how much of the thyroid it will kill. Sometimes too much, sometimes too little so patients sometimes have to have RAI again but eventually, the majority of patients will go to the hypo side. Sounds like this has happened to you.
My advice is to find a good doctor that recognizes that even if your levels are in range, that range may not be normal for you. Unfortunately, there are very few doctors that are open minded and your thyroid controls so much of your body that many of us are on a rollercoaster for years before receiving the proper treatment.
Request copies of your labs and keep complaining until you find a doctor that will listen.
