Brief Answer: Follow up Detailed Answer: I would recommend you continue to monitor your level. If it continues to slowly climb them on a medication would be recommended. This is not something I would recommend you worry about it very much. Hormonal medications are very good at keeping this under control for a very very long time. Dr. Galamaga

Brief Answer: Followup Detailed Answer: i'm on a medication can work for many years. Even decades. I would not worry very much right now because we have many new medications that can keep this under control for a very long long time. every patient is different regarding side effects. Try not to worry about that right now. The big picture is that this will be controlled no matter what.
