Introduction to Graves’ Disease
Short Description of Graves Disease
Graves’ disease is a kind of autoimmune disease that results to damage of the thyroid gland, a butterfly shaped organ in the neck that produces hormones that regulate how your body uses energy.
Symptoms of Graves Disease
Common signs and symptoms of Graves’ disease include:
- Anxiety and irritability
- A fine tremor of the hands or fingers
- Heat sensitivity and an increase in perspiration or warm, moist skin
- Weight loss, despite normal eating habits
- Enlargement of the thyroid gland (goiter)
- Change in menstrual cycles
- Erectile dysfunction or reduced libido
- Frequent bowel movements
- Bulging eyes (Graves’ ophthalmopathy)
- Thick, red skin usually on the shins or tops of the feet (Graves’ dermopathy)
- Rapid or irregular heartbeat (palpitations)
- Sleep disturbance
About Graves Disease
Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disease that results in too much thyroid hormones present. The disease is also known as hyperthyroidism. While a number of diseases can result in hyperthyroidism, Graves’ disease is a common cause. Our thyroid hormones affect many systems in the body and therefore symptoms of Graves’ can also be wide ranging. The condition can affect anyone but it is more prevalent in women and in people younger than 40 years of age. The goal of treatment is to reduce the amount of thyroid hormones the body produces in order to lessen the severity of the symptoms.
Etiology of Graves’ Disease
Graves’ disease is due to a malfunction in the body’s disease-fighting immune system. It is really not known why this occurs. Our immune system usually produces antibodies to target a specific bacteria or virus or other foreign substance. In patients with Graves’ disease and for reasons that are not fully understood, the immune system produces an antibody to one part of the cells in the hormone-producing gland in the neck. As a rule, thyroid function is regulated by a hormone released by the pituitary gland, a very small gland located at the base of the brain. The antibody associated with Graves’ disease – thyrotropin receptor antibody (TRAb) – this acts like the regulatory pituitary hormone. What this means is the TRAb takes over the normal regulation of the thyroid, resulting in overproduction of thyroid hormones and accompanying symptoms.
While anyone can develop Graves’ disease, a lot of factors can increase the risk such as:
- Family History – There is likely a gene or genes that can make someone susceptible to getting the disease.
- Sex—Women more than men are prone to developing symptoms.
- Age – Graves’ disease usually develops in people prior to age 40.
- Other Immune Disorders – People with other immune system disorders like type 1 diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis also are more susceptible.
- Emotional or Physical Stress – Stressful life events can trigger hyperthyroidism among people that have a predisposition to developing the disease.
- Pregnancy – Recent childbirth or pregnancy can also increase the risk of the disorder especially among women that have genes that increase their risk.
- Smoking – cigarette smoking can affect the immune system and increases the risk of getting Graves’ disease. Smokers that that have it are also at increased risk for developing Graves’ ophthalmopathy.
- Complications of Graves’ Disease
If left untreated or poorly managed, Graves’ disease can put you at increased risk for some complications such as:
- Graves’ Opthalmopathy – This occurs when the immune system sets it sights to attack muscle and tissue around the eyes. The resulting inflammation causes the eyes to protrude or bulge. The hyperthyroidism may result to double vision and light sensitivity. Severe eye swelling can result to damage of the optic nerve and can lead to loss of vision.
- Heart Problems – Untreated Graves’ disease can result to arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat). If you have arrhythmia there is an increased possibility of having heart failure, stroke and other heart issues.
- Skin Problems — There is a small population of patients with Graves’ disease that have developed red, thickened skin on their feet and shins. This is known as Graves’ dermopathy or pretibial myxedema. It is not painful but it can be uncomfortable for the patient.
- Thyroid Storm – Very high levels of thyroid hormones can speed up body functions causing arrhythmia, high rate of pulse and shock. Thyroid storm is a life-threatening condition and requires quick medical intervention.
- Brittle bones – When left untreated, hyperthyroidism can lead to weak or brittle bones (osteoporosis). The strength of your bones depends in part on the amount of calcium and other minerals it contains. A high level of thyroid hormone disrupts the ability of the body to integrate calcium into your bones.
Graves’ Disease and Pregnancy
It is a known fact that the thyroid hormone plays a central role in the development of the developing baby’s brain and nervous system. If hyperthyroidism is left untreated during pregnancy, it can be harmful to the unborn child. High levels of thyroid hormone during pregnancy can increase the risk of:
- Low birth weight
- Loss of pregnancy before the baby is fully developed
- High blood pressure during pregnancy or preeclampsia
- Premature labor
- Hyperthyroidism in the newborn
- Congestive heart failure in mother
