Adults With Thyroid Disease Lack Knowledge of Ophthalmologic Threats
Adults with thyroid eye disease or Graves’ disease without orbitopathy have greater understanding of thyroid eye disease than the general population, but still exhibit some knowledge gaps, according to findings published in Thyroid.
“Previous studies have demonstrated that increased patient knowledge of a disease results in earlier presentation to health services, better insight into that condition, reduced anxiety and increased compliance with treatment,” wrote Matthew R. Edmunds, PhD, MRCP, FRCOphth, of the academic unit of ophthalmology at the University of Birmingham, and the Birmingham and Midland Eye Centre of City Hospital in Birmingham, U.K., and Kristien Boelaert, PhD, FRCP, of the Institute of Metabolism and Systems Research, University of Birmingham. “This is especially important in thyroid eye disease, an inflammatory condition of the orbital tissues which occurs in around 25% of those with the autoimmune hyperthyroidism, Graves’ disease.”
