Good? GREAT article. Not sure whether I'll be told it's Graves. Eyes are pretty normal. Still need some distinction there. A lot jumps out at me, the following most especially.
>>Autoimmune Nature of Gravesí Disease
Another very important reason I object to rushing into aggressive therapy is that Gravesí disease is an autoimmune disorder.
*****The thyroid gland is the victim, not the cause in GD. *******
The disease process in Gravesí disease is fascinating and fairly straightforward. The immune system, sensing that our thyroid tissue is foreign, is triggered or stimulated to launch an immune response directed at thyroid tissue. Normally, the immune system protects us from foreign substances and infectious agents, and it prevents cancerous cells from developing. In autoimmune diseases, the immune system is hyper-vigilant and confuses our bodyís cells with foreign substances.<<<
