Your daughter has an overactive thyroid gland which is known as Hyperthyroidism or Grave's disease. Do not be alarmed by the name 'Grave's' as this is the name of the doctor who first described this condition many years ago. Your daughter is being correctly treated. If the carbimazole does not work then the correct second option is radioactive iodine. Despite its name radioactive iodine is remarkably safe and very effective.
