Re: block and replace treatment

Decided to answer your post although I'm only taking anti-thyroid meds.

I do know of someone who did Block and Replace and they were still in remission 9 years after discontinuing the meds. Although if I remember correctly, she continued on a low dose off thyroid hormone replacement for a couple of years after dropping the ATD.

Hope this helps!
