I was daginous with graves several years ago and have been on medication ever since. Did have the radioactive treatment back then. I have suffered for several years with head sweats badly and getting much worst in the last year or so, running down neck, into my ears, off my nose. This happens just walking very short distances, while golfing etc. Not one of my doctors either ARE not listening or have any suggestions. It s very embarrassing , I am 70 years of age and can t get any help. II have an internal medicine doctor,entraconologest (sorry about the spelling) What would you suggest?? How can I get help??? Thank you Sandy fisher

Asslamo-alekum! My father, aged 65 years, has been diagnosed as the patient of Gravesâ?? Disease. He is very week and under weight (41 Kgs. , Height 5 feet and 5 inch). We have come to know about it today afternoon. A senior doctor (M.D.), at Holy Family Hospital, New Delhi, India has diagnosing him for last 15 days. After a number of blood tests and urine test, basically for TSH, T3, T4, Urea, Blood Countâ?¦.to name a few and also after the Endocrine Thyroid Scan, it has been found that my father is suffering from Gravesâ?? Disease. He has been prescribed now 3 tabs. of Carbimazole 10 mg. per day and 1 cap. of Indural at bed time. We would like to know if he has been given the correct medicine or do we have to consult any specialist in Graveâ??s Disease. Please tell us few specialists in Delhi. Also suggest what is the diet plan for this disease. Thank you, Allah Hafiz!

About 20 years ago I was diagnosed with Graves Disease. Had heart palpitations, bulging eyes, enlarged gland. I took ptu for about two years came off the medication and remained in the normal range since that time. Was on the high end of normal but within range. I just had a TSH done and the dr now says my level is 15.9 and I need thyroid replacement medication. What would cause this? Should I request that my levels be retested? What is my best course of action?
