What is Graves’ Disease?
Graves’ disease is a disorder of the body’s immune system. The disease causes thyroid hormones to be over-produced, resulting in a condition called hyperthyroidism. This term means that the body has too much thyroid hormone. In fact, the most common cause of hyperthyroidism is Graves’ disease.
What is the Thyroid Gland?
Located in the lower front of the neck, this butterfly-shaped gland produces thyroid hormones. Such hormones help the body to stay warm, use energy, and keep organs such as the brain and heart working as they should. These processes are called your metabolism.
