Evaluation of cats post radioiodine therapy
Twenty-four client-owned hyperthyroid cats that underwent low-dose radioiodine therapy were evaluated for 12 months.
Fifteen of the 24 (63%) cats achieved euthyroidism following low-dose radioiodine treatment.
The incidence of hypothyroidism was 25% (6 ), of those three had decreased renal function with decreased glomerular filtration rates (GFR) and before developing azotemia in two.
Research suggests that hyperthyroid patients should be monitored post radioiodine treatment for evidence of hyperthyroidism and decreased GFR.
