Thyroid eye disease

  1. 1.   Star Imara Melissa
  2. 2.  Anyone can be affected by this disease. ANYONE. Yet it seems like more females are affected because we mean…it’s a thyroid problem. You can be any age but the average age seems to be in the mid 40’s and for females, somewhere in their early to mid 20’s. Not racist – any race is eligible for this disease.
  3. 3.  This disease is a branch from Grave’s disease which affects the thyroid. It’s mostly known for hormonal problems it causes when swelling occurs. Graves Disease has many other symptoms but the main one we’re focusing on is the eye portion.
  4. 4.  Itusually occurs at anytime of year with anyone. This feature of Grave’s Disease is called EXOPHTHALAMOS. (protruding eyes) Yeah. Try saying that 5 times fast!
  5. 5.  Exophthalmos is this. Yikes. Characterized by protruding eyeballs, doctors have yet to figure out if this disorder is actually a symptom of Grave’s Disease or not.
  6. 6.  What this can do is create really bad discomfort in the eyes and cause dryness and redness. The swollen eyeballs are prone to tearing because the lids are so swollen that no protection to the eyes are available. In really bad cases, the optic nerve can get damaged and cause partial blindness to the person. Double yikes.
  7. 7. In minor cases, eyedrops will help treat it In even bigger cases prism glasses will be used to correct double vision Severe cases, RAI will be used. S eNot as vsevere e r e
  8. 8.  Most of the time thyroid disorders are cured or treated with heavy medication (pills and steroids) But in reality, they come with many sides effects and risks So why not just try and prevent it before it reaches you? Natural thyroid ―medication‖ consists of herbs and natural diets, and even yoga and meditation techniques that can aid in NOT using drugs.
