I apologize in advance if this topic has been discussed and I missed it. I saw my endocrinologist today and my hormone levels are still fluctuating from month to month despite adjustment of my dosage of Methimazole several times.

By the way, i have moderate TED if that makes a difference about using this therapy. Thanks so much.
