Over Active Thyroid Treatment Can The Patient Still Do Hairdressing?

It is most unlikely that she will be in contact with clients until after the precautionary period - this will depend on the level of radiation that is given. Iodine 131 is a radioactive isotope of the element iodine and is used in the treatment of hyperthyroidism, a condition caused by an overactive thyroid gland. Iodine 131 is taken as a pill and works by destroying the cells of the thyroid gland, which eliminates the symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Because it is radioactive, patients undergoing this treatment must take special precautions to avoid exposing people around them to radiation until the iodine 131 breaks down and leaves the body. After a stay in the hospital for a few days until the radiation in the body is reduced to safe levels, the patient is allowed home. patients must limit contact with other people as much as possible, especially small children and pregnant women. They should not sit close to people on couches or in vehicles and not let children sit on their lap. They should try to stay in their own room as much as possible and make sure they wear socks or slippers at all times. They must sleep alone and avoid intimate contact with a partner until their doctor allows them to resume normal activity. If possible, they should use a separate bathroom from others in their household for the duration of the precaution period. Men should urinate sitting down to avoid splashing urine, and the toilet should be flushed two to three times with the lid closed after use. Hands should be washed thoroughly after using the bathroom and patients shower at least once a day. All towels, washcloths and other laundry should be kept separate and washed at least twice before being used again by others in their household. These are just the basic precautions. The patient would most definitely be issued with a copy of the full regime that is to be followed.
