Is graves disease curable?
Hello, I have been diagnosed with graves disease in oct 19,since then i hsve been on medication for increasing and decreasing my tsh,which went from undetectable to 46 in 40 days and i gained around 12 kgs in that span,since then i could not get that back in range.i m still 6 on tsh.and i had started gym n dieting but no weight loss. How long would it take for things to get back on track,could i loose weight once my tsh becomes normal,i mean my ability to loose weight if i work on it,as right now whatever i do it doesn't budge. TIA

Graves’ disease is a disorder of thyroid gland which has increased uncontrolled production of thyroid hormones. So for which v use anti thyroid drugs which r very effective. With use of anti thyroid drugs some times sudden hypothyroidism can happen and leads to weight gain and tiredness. Stoping of antithyroid drugs temporarily will solve most of the problems. Treatment aspect other than antithyroid drugs have option of radio iodine therapy which is quite safe and one time dose usually . Another option is surgery. Both the options after treatment will land up in permanent hypothyroidism and need to take life long thyroid medications.
