In February, talk show host Wendy Williams announced she would take a 3-week break from her popular daytime TV show to rest and focus on managing her recently diagnosed Graves’ disease. Williams, who had fainted on the air in late October, was instructed by her physician to take the hiatus.
For many Americans, Williams’ announcement may have been the first time they had heard of Graves’ disease, an autoimmune disorder that causes the overproduction of thyroid hormones. Compared with thyroid conditions such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves’ disease is relatively unknown to the general public.
“I think because Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is the most common cause of an underactive thyroid in the United States, it gets a lot of attention,” Barrie M. Weinstein, MD, assistant professor of endocrinology, diabetes and bone disease at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, told Endocrine Today.
