    Hi Goddes

    I think that it will be a good idea to visit your endocrinologist. I have Graves' disease . I was diagnosed about a year ago. I am on methimazole and my levels are normal . I can't tell you why your levels has increased especially if you were treated with iodine . But this is always a good idea to check with your doctor just to be on the save side . I hope that I could help you more than that . Regards

      Dear Goddess,

      I know that it is always good to be 100 percent healthy and especially when you already went through all these worries . I am the same way. But as my friend endocrinologist said once when I was worrying about my thyroid so much that of all diseases this is one of the best diseaseaaes to have . Everything with thyroid is managble . I think that she is right . Many people would want to trade our problem to theirs . Please do not be scared . Just get it checked . And no matter what , this problem is fixable and you are gonna be just fine . Please keep me posted . Best regards .
