Hi suggestions appreciated. I went to the Specialist today and was advised that I have Graves Disease. I have been on 20mg of Carbimazole for 4 weeks and been feeling much better. The Specialist today however is suggesting that I have Radioiodine treatment and I don't know what to do. I did ask her and my GP for my blood results and both times walked out with out them.
