Experts: Weigh risks, benefits of antithyroid therapies in children with Graves’ disease

May 27, 2015

Physicians should weight the adverse effects of antithyroid therapies, which are especially increased in children, against the benefits while choosing a therapy for children with Graves’ disease, according to Mathew John, MD.

“Radioactive iodine therapy would be a good choice, especially if children have not achieved remission within 2 years of antithyroid therapies,” John, of the Providence Endocrine & Diabetes Specialty Centre in India, told Endocrine Today.
