Graves Disease?


Graves' disease is an autoimmune disease whereby the patient's own thyroid gland is attacked by his or her own immune system causing it to produce too much thyroxin. Thyroxin (T4) is a hormone that is produced by the thyroid gland which has four iodine molecules that are attached to its molecular structure. This disease is characterised by hyperthyroidism as a result of circulating auto antibodies.
