What is the Thyroid Gland?
The thyroid gland located in the neck produces thyroid hormones which help the body use energy, stay warm and keep the brain, heart, muscles, and other organs working normally.
What is Graves’ Disease?
Graves’ disease is hyperthyroidism caused by a generalized overactivity of the thyroid gland. The hyperthyroid symptoms of Graves’ disease are the same as those caused by other types of hyperthyroidism (see the Hyperthyroidism brochure). Patients may have inflammation of the eyes, swelling of the tissues around the eyes, bulging of the eyes, or double vision. The severity of the eye problems is not related to the severity of the hyperthyroidism. Problems with the eyes occur much more often in people with Graves’ disease who smoke cigarettes.
