Our expert says:
Graves Basedow’s disease is caused by outo immune antibodies attacking your thyroid and causing hyper thyroidism or an overactive thyroid gland. The radioactive iodine concentrates in the thyroid as this is where Iodine is absorbed and won’t make you sterile, although you should avoid falling pregnant for 6 months afterwards. It is safe to use. You won’t get fat as your thyroid will be monitored and treated as needed. You need to go for the treatment as you can get very sick if this gets out of hand.
