Thank you doctor. I've have an iodine uptake test in Sept. It was nearly at 100% uptake. My levels have actually come down thanks to the methimazole dosage increase from 15mg daily to 30 daily. I haven't been treated properly, thus far, and have been pretty much treating myself due to my previous doctors lack of concern (but willingness to write scripts only). :( However, I saw my NEW doctor today :), he's wonderful. Another blood test, and close monitoring from now on! I also plan to see an endocrinologist in Feb. Thanks for your help!! Dawn, RN
