Ok...I understand what you mean. I do not know that much about Graves treatment as I have the opposite problem so thank you for the little education!
That is strange because the med is an immune suppressant so your thyroid should be behaving. The gluten-free diet should improve absorption...maybe you haven't started to absorb better yet as it can take a little while for that to happen and so, short term, the thyroid is getting worse? It wouldn't make sense but something has changed since you started the gluten-free diet.
There is definitely a huge difference between hypo and hyper and you can't mistake that one! I do know that nuking your thyroid might be needed and it's not such a bad thing. I have friends who have had it done and they are doing fine, with no side effects. Kind of spooky treatment but is it better to take an immunosuppressant for life? You have to weigh the pro's and con's. I think they nuke more here as it's easier to control your thyroid afterwards. They can supplement with hormone replacement if they knock it down too low.
I hope they can find a reason for this or I hope it calms down for you and further treatment won't be necessary. Good luck...I am sorry I couldn't be of much help. Thyroid problems totally suck....especially hyper-thyroid. Hope you feel better soon!
Thanks Gemini! That was a really nice response. I dont know anyone who has had their thyroid nuked (except a friend of my mom's daughter but she had cancer and had her thyroid removed first!) so it was really nice to hear that real individuals were fine after. And you are right - spooky is totally the word for the treatment. I keep picturing myself glowing when the lights are off like on cartoons. I know that doesn't happen but it's still an image in my head.
