There are: as many opinions about this as there are Endocrinologists and it is a BOARD CERTIFIED Endocrinologist whom you should consult for the treatment of Hyperthyroidsim! Mild cases which remit promptly may result is treatment times as short as 6 months...long standing cases one-two years ..Generally in the US treatmenent with Radioactive Iodine may be suggested after one year !
