Hyperthyroidism

I've just been told that I have low TSH and have since had more blood tests which show I have hyperthoroidism. Has anyone tried homeopathic medicine for treatment instead of conventional? Also, the only real symptom I have is my hair becoming brittle and falling out or breaking off recently. Does this get better after treatment? I'm so nervous about gaining a ton of weight - I have not had any trouble keeping weight on or gaining...unfortunately! The treatment for this type of thyroid issue seems so drastic...I'm nervous! Thanks in advance for any answers you can give ~

Re: Hyperthyroidism

I'm so sorry your question has gone unanswered for this long. I hope you haven't given up on us.

I am hypothyroid, and my doctor is a homeopathic MD. Even he treats low thyroid with prescription thyroid hormone. I truly doubt your hyperT can be treated by homeopathics alone.

I don't blame you for not wanting the "drastic" treatment. (I assume you mean RAI ablation?) I wouldn't accept that, either. Not without giving anti-thyroid drugs a darned good chance at it. And if they didn't work, I would opt for sugical thyroid removal... never RAI. Do your homework before you agree to that.
