Thyroid test "Normal"
I saw my doctor yesterday aftering having my usual blood tests done on Tuesday. I am happy to say that the tests have come back at an acceptable level (as I suspected). I didn't write down my readings (I will get these from my doctor next visit) but I remember the TSH was 0.7. But I was told that all is good. After telling her that I have not taken any medication (dose that I was told to take at last visit - 1 neo-mercazale to keep heart rate down) now for a few weeks and my heart rate is fine she is happy for me to come back in 6 months or before if any symptoms come back. I am obviously really happy that my Grave's has subsided and hopefully is gone for good. Time will tell. I know that medication was necessary in the beginning but I think that maybe diet, lifestyle changes and possibly dental revision may have played a part in my cure. I cannot be 100% sure but every day I read about GD sufferers who never get to the stage I have, so I will continue to do what I am doing. I hope that there are some sufferers out there who might benefit from my documenting my journey over the past 18months. Maybe some of the things I have discovered have worked for me will also work for someone else. Good Luck to all!
