    How is your Graves' disease being treated? I couldn't find any exercise guidelines, but most of the scant evidence suggests that the best thing to do is get your hyperthyroidism under control in order to prevent or slow down muscle wasting and exercise intolerance (1, 2).

    I am being treated with medication. I have had this disease for all most 4 years. As of this point I'm still going through blood test and such for my hormone levels. As of rite now my levels are off but am working with doctors to get everything back in line. I take a medication called (Levothyroxin) 125Mgc. Thanks for the info man. And I will continue checking things out. CJ
