    Where they block the thyroid gland with carbimazole to stop it functioning and replace what it is now not producing with levothyroxin.

    @Jess Yes! Please see my answer in another thread. I did B&R 20 years ago and have been doing great since! I'm actually HYPOthryoid now.. which is fine with me. I'm on .75 synthroid.
