I was diagnosed with feline hyperthyroidism in late September 2011. Taking pills twice a day was no fun (for me or my owner) which is why we had to find an alternative treatment. I was sent to a clinic for Radioiodine I-131 Therapy in mid-October and will find out in January if I have been cured.
UPDATE: My blood tests in January 2012 show that I no longer have hyperthyroidism. YEAH!!
