My wife, 61, developed Graves’ disease (hyperthyroidism).  She saw an endocrinologist who put her on methimazole.  But after 3 years, he couldn’t get the dose right.  It was always either too high or too low.  Frustrated at having lost half her hair, and after developing a goiter that she said felt like a hand squeezing her trachea, she was referred to a surgeon who removed a 140 gram thyroid gland.

She’s now on synthroid and feeling better. 

There seems to be a lot of discussion on this forum about iodine and thyroid levels for folks with an intact, but malfunctioning gland.  But I haven’t seen any discussion about how to handle iodine and what to look for in treating someone who has had their thyroid removed.

Since iodine concentrates in the thyroid, how should someone without the gland supplement iodine?  And without a thyroid to presumably buffer serum iodine level, is there a danger of iodine toxicity developing?

And are TSH, T3 and T4 lab values for someone without a thyroid the same as for one with an intact thyroid?

Have her take the protocol amount of iodine. It’s used all over the body, not just the thyroid. The protocol amount will not give iodine toxicity.

I think RT3 should also be regularly tested with TSH, FT3, and FT4.
