Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • I did have an overactive thyroid but it could not be controlled with carbimazole, so, the doctor decided to treat with radio-active drink and 'kill' the thyroid. I now have to take thyroxine for the rest of my life. The weight gain happened at this time and I have not been able to lose it. I also get very breathless.
