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.
From this study (4 years ago):
Bone density test did not improve after two years. I have increased Vitamine D3 to 2000IU per day.
