Graves diseaseGraves’ disease is an autoimmune condition in which the body attacks the thyroid gland resulting in an overproduction of thyroid hormones (thyrotoxicosis). The condition is named after Robert Graves, a 19th-century Irish physician who discovered and describes the condition.

Graves’ disease can have an effect on many different parts of the body such as the nervous system, eyes, skin, hair and nails, lungs, digestive system and reproductive system. This broad number of bodily systems affected by Graves’ disease points to the complex nature of the human body.

In Graves’ disease the gland in the knack is enlarged and hyperactive, producing excessive amounts of thyroid hormone. Graves’ disease is eight times more common in women and men and most frequently occurs between the age of 20 and 40. It does have a familial tendency, which means that it runs in families. The disease is characterized by a formation of autoantibodies that bind to receptors in the thyroid membrane and stimulate the gland.
