I am a type one diabetic and I also have hyperthyroidism. According to the research I have been doing apparently 1/3 of diabetics have thyroid issues so Im surprised it hasn’t come up often in these forums.
I’ve been having issues with my sugar control as my thyroids have been playing up. I’ve been asked by my endo to consider getting it radiated and by doing that will probably mean I’ll end up going from over active to under active and have to take a hormone tablet for life. I’m not sure this is worth it and would like to hear what others who have gone through this have to say.
I’ve read that when you become under active, insulin will stay in your body longer due to lower metabolism so does that mean insulin dosages are lowered?
Currently my thyroid is being controlled with carbimercazole tablets but I keep relapsing and going super overactive.
Has anyone here gone through radioactive iodine therapy that can share their experience? Thanks
