Product description

Graves' Disease, a common form of hyperthyroidism characterized by a goiter and often a slight protrusion of the eyeballs, currently affects approximately 200 million people worldwide with 3 million affected in the United States alone. The author presents a work that serves as a practical guide and reference, and is based in part on her personal experience in coping with GD. Included are chapters with basic information on GD, the thyroid and its hormones, Graves' ophthalmopathy, dermopathy, and acropachy, the diagnosis of GD, autoantibodies and autoimmune diseases associated with GD, genetic and non-genetic influences, allopathic treatments, alternative medicine, special considerations in pregnancy, children, and teens, hypothyroidism associated with GD, anecdotes and testimony of GD patients, and resources for further information. Also provided is a list of medical acronyms and a glossary of medical terms.
