Dear Dr. Lupo,
In a 'nutshell', I live in the Middle East, so it is sometimes hard to get straight answers. I was hyper and said to have all indications of Graves and was started on Carbimazole 30mg daily and Propranolol in 2007, now I am hypo for the last 1-3 months and on only 5mg daily of Carbimazole. I do blood work every two months.
Why am I still on Carbimazole if I am hypo?
I read somewhere you said something to the fact that you may not have Graves if you are now hypo. What did you mean?
I am having weight gain. Tell me what I can do to combat this and I will do it without question? I was taking B6/B12 daily as part of a diet which was working, can I continue to do this?
I am having hair loss which is driving me to tears most of the time. The male pattern baldness seems to be it. What can I do to combat this, injections, hair replacement therapy???
Also, I desperately want to get pregnant, how does this work with a thyroid problem?
Thank you so much in advance!
