Graves’ Disease and Thyroid Eye Disease – Alon Kahana, MD, PhD


Today’s blog will discuss the basics of Graves disease and thyroid eye disease. This most likely will be the first in a series of blogs on this really important and complex topic, and will focus on the treatment of the endocrine disorder itself.

I frequently get sent patients who are hyperthyroid and wondering which of their treatment options should be chosen for their care. Some are still hyperthyroid, with suppressed TSH and elevated free T4 in lab tests. Others have been on methimazole and have adequate function but the methimazole has been used for many months, and sometimes years, and the time has come to decide a definitive treatment. Some have unstable thyroid hormone levels while on methimazole, and their doctors struggle to stabilize the disease.
