Re: 15 year old with hyperthyroidism
If your daughter does indeed have hyperthyroidism, the best advice I can give you is to *NOT* let them do radioactive iodine on her to kill her thyroid gland.
There is a LOT to learn about thyroid disease and it's treatments that the medical profession WILL NOT tell you. Go into treatment with your eyes WIDE OPEN and trust your gut instincts.
Dx Graves 4/99, tx w/Tapazole & Atenolol - Remission 7/03; Relapse 1/06, back on Tapazole, remission & off meds again 11/06.
