Our expert says:
The radioactive iodene irradiates the abnormal (overactive cells) and the T4 will gradually decline as the cells stop functioning. It is difficult to predict how fast this will work but some patients may need Eltroxin as quickly as 2 weeks after the radioactive treatment. Your doctor will probably do regular blood tests to monitor the T3 and T4 levels.
