My Treatment, My Choice: What do I Need to Know?


We were about to launch a new family business in the week that I also became a patient, diagnosed with Graves’ Disease.

Now I had an explanation for the uncontrollable trembling of my hands that had made my parents fear I might have Parkinson’s Disease; for my rapid speech which was apparently like a music track on fast forward; for my heart keeping me awake at night with its pounding and irregular rate and levels of anxiety that soared as I felt my body spinning out of control.

My GP was calm and reassuring. She was sure I had Graves’ disease, an overactive thyroid. I needed time and medication to bring the symptoms under control.
