Test Details
Test Code:NM0054
Test Name:Iodine Therapy for Thyrotoxicosis
Test Details & Preparation
Thyrotoxicosis is a term used to describe a condition where the thyroid gland is overactive and producing too much thyroid hormone (thyroxin). If not treated your health will be affected.

Radioiodine treatment uses a form of iodine that is radioactive. The thyroid absorbs iodine obtained from your diet to perform its normal function, which is to produce thyroxin. Radioactive iodine will concentrate in the same way as normal iodine but will cause the thyroid to produce less thyroxin. This is a common and well accepted form of treatment that has been used worldwide for more than 50 years.

The treatment is given by swallowing a small gelatine capsule (the size of an antibiotic capsule) containing the radioiodine. This will not make you feel unwell and you may leave the hospital immediately following treatment. You may eat and drink normally before attending for treatment but it is suggested that you do not eat or drink anything for two hours after treatment. This will help you to absorb the radioiodine more quickly.

You can return to work immediately unless your job involves handling food working in close proximity to the same individual for most of the working day or working with young children.

Radioiodine has been used successfully for the treatment of thyrotoxicosis for more than 50 years. Patients who have received this treatment have been studied very carefully. There is no increased risk of you developing cancer as a result of this treatment.

Radioiodine may result in your thyroid becoming underactive. This could happen in a few months or even years. Your doctor will arrange for you to have regular blood tests to detect this. Underactivity of the thyroid is easily treated with the natural thyroid hormone thyroxin, which is very safe.
