Radioactive Iodine Treatments Update: Time For A Real Solution For Thyroid Cancer Treatments.
An insider’s look on radioactive iodine treatments and scans, and why the real message has only began to emerge.
By: Elaine Savard
Elaine Savard, a papillary thyroid survivor, revealed, “It’s time we separate fact from fiction, and myths from truths. The real story here is there is no need to go through the weeks of a tired, diet restricted environment.
As proof, Elaine Savard asks patients that have to go through radioactive iodine treatments or scans to consider taking the drug Thyrogen instead of going through the usual preparation protocol.
Three reasons why Savard recommends this are:
When following the usually prescribed radioactive iodine treatment protocol, you will have to go off your thyroid replacement hormones for one month before replacing them with Cytomel. Being off your medications can cause many undesired side effects.
When following the usually prescribed radioactive iodine treatment protocol, there is the requirement of being on a iodine restricted diet for two weeks prior to the treatment or scan.
The Thyrogen protocol involves the purchase of two injections, going to a doctor two days in a row prior to the treatment or scan date and have the injections, and no other further restrictions.
For a free, revealing excerpt on Thyrogen go to Preparing For Radioactive Iodine Treatment-2 Different Processes for a more detailed explanation.
