Hello. I'm wondering if anyone has breastfed or has more information on breastfeeding while being treated for Graves Disease hyperthyroidism. I recently was diagnosed and have began being treated with methizamole 10 mg per day. My endocrinologist said that I should discontinue breastfeeding my 13 month old, but I am finding conflicting information on line...any thoughts?
This was a lot to digest in one day...first no breastfeeding and then I was told that I could not get pregnant for 18 months to 2 years! Who knows if we would have tried before then, but I would like that to be my decision! Grrr...I've read that Graves is found sometimes after pregnancy and am wondering if anyone else is in the same boat as me...I'm thinking not only of my 13 month old, but for future breastfeeding babies as well.
Thanks for your help!
