I was diagnosed with Graves’ disease in 2000. At the time I knew no one who had this, and I was given almost no information about my disease. I was told, take the anti-thyroid meds and it will be better. They didn’t work for me. Then I was told, do RAI and then you’ll have to take a pill and it will be better. For me it was better than hyperthyroidism, but I never have gotten back to that old normal. I have been researching Graves’ disease, hyperthyroidism and other related thyroid subjects since about 2004. Now I try to help other people learn about their thyroid condition and help them feel more empowered and less ill-informed.
