A member asked:
Can you tell me why after radiation treatment for an over active thyroid the meds still don't work well and can't be regulated?

Not true.: Medications work very well for both overactive and underactive thyroid. Problems with regulation are related to your dosing or to the adequacy of the ablation. Those should be easy to figure out.
