Question Endo update....

Hi! I went to the endo yesterday. Explained to me about graves disease, etc. (my tsh was low) also said my thyroid was 2x's its size. Took more blood I should know more tomorrow. However I went to the ob/gyn last month b/c of missing period. She ordered an ultrasound which I had today and they said I have polycystic ovaries.
Which puts me at an increase for diabetes, heart disease...etc.

Does anyone have info about these 2 things being related??
Also, anyone with hyperthyroid- which treatments did you choose? The doc said with the radioactive iodine that I can't sleep in the same bed as hubby for a 1 1/2 weeks and I also have to be careful about how long I hold my kids, which is rough since I am a homemaker!

What are your thoughts?
Thanks!
April

Re: Endo update....

April,
I'm bumping up your question in the hope that K9Mom sees it. She will tell you not to make a hasty decision to have your thyroid RAI ablated, and that you should try anti-thyroid medication first.
If you get no response to this question within a reasonable time, post it again with K9Mom's name in the title to get her attention.
