A Conversation for Graves' Disease (Hyperthyroidism)

Grave's Disease

Post 1


I am 31 years old and I was just diagnosed with Grave's disease. I don't know how long I have had it but, I just starting losing weight for no reason in the past month. My periods have always been irregular and I have had a very low libido my whole sexual life. How long would I have to have Grave's disease before I start having heart and eye issues?

People with Graves Disease vary in which of the symptoms they have; you might not get the eye problems at all, or you may not have heart problems (caused by hyperthyroidism) or you could have both - I have both.

I find it's one of the main issues that doctors cannot tell you what to expect because not everybody has the same symptoms or for the same length of time.
