Hi, All:

 

A bit of advice on Graves, please?

 

Back in 2007, i was a Hyper with Graves.
Then remission came in 2010 - normal blood works, eye no longer bulging.
Now as of Feb. 15; however, i fear the return of Graves as my TSH has dropped to <0.005 (0.27-4.2), FT4 up at 1.48 (0.93-1.7), and T3 = 115 (61-177).
My endo says to "chill out" but if she's had to live with a bulging eye for 3 years like some of us, i'm sure she would've said otherwise.

 

So my question is, do my lab results indicate a definite return of Graves, or do i still have a chance to prevent it with PTU?

 

Welcoming all advice with much appreciation.

 

Cheers,
nonie :)

 

P.S. My endo's put me back on PTU (upon my insistence, i might add) at 1/2 tab a day.
[But this time it's Timazol, not Tapazole, though. Is it okay?]
