Symptoms of Graves’ disease
Graves’ disease can cause bulging eyes in some patients. This symptom is known as Grave’s ophthalmopathy, and it affects about 30 percent of Graves’ disease patients.
Other symptoms you may experience are the same that occur with other forms of hyperthyroidism:
- Enlargement of the thyroid gland
- Heat intolerance
- Heart palpitations
- Trouble sleeping
- Unplanned weight loss
Graves’ disease treatment options
Graves’ disease treatments are similar to treatments for other hyperthyroid conditions. Common treatments include medicine, radioactive iodine, and thyroid surgery. You may be eligible for minimally invasive thyroid surgery, which is done with smaller incisions and offers faster recovery. Meet our surgery team.
