You should consider radioactive iodine when it recurs. ...Read more

At this time, just follow the thyroid level and remain on medication. ...Read more

Diet and exercise: Methimazole is given to correct hyperthyroidism. If you are losing weight because your thyroid is overactive, you may start to gain it back when the thyroid is regulated properly.

Reverse symptoms: Hi. You know the symptoms you had from untreated hyperthyroidism. Most (not all) of the symptoms of hypo are just the opposite. Instead of hotter, you feel cooler.

Generally, you feel fatigued with both, and you can lose hair with both. Check TSH, free T4 ...Read more
