The first and only consumer book on Thyroid Eye Disease, by the author of Graves' Disease, A Practical Guide In her meticulous, exhaustive and thoughtful book, Elaine Moore has written the definitive guide on Thyroid Eye Disease (TED), more specifically referred to as Graves Ophthalmopathy (GO)/5. “Thyroid Eye Disease and Its Healing Ebook” This book represents all methods that I know so far for treating Thyroid eye disease- medical and alternative. It includes herbs and supplements I have used to help my Thyroid Eye Disease, 10 eye exercises for double vision, 8 other exercises and healing methods to relieve Thyroid Eye Disease. Graves’ eye disease, also called Graves’ Ophthalmopathy or Thyroid Eye disease, is a problem that usually develops in people with an overactive thyroid caused by Graves’ disease (See brochure on Graves’ disease).Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disease caused by antibodies directed against receptors present in the thyroid cells and also on the surface of the cells behind the eyes. Thyroid Eye Disease is an inflammatory condition which affects the orbital contents including the extraocular muscles and orbital is almost always associated with Graves’ disease (GD) but may rarely be seen in Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, primary hypothyroidism, or thyroid cancer. The ocular manifestations of Thyroid Eye Disease (TED) include soft tissue inflammation, eyelid retraction.
An overactive thyroid gland can cause hyperthyroidism. You may notice nervousness, muscle weakness, a racing heart, tremors, irritability, and problems sleeping. Having too much of the thyroid hormone in your body may also lead to Graves' disease, which is a common type of hyperthyroidism. Graves ophthalmopathy, also known as thyroid eye disease (TED), is an autoimmune inflammatory disorder of the orbit and periorbital tissues, characterized by upper eyelid retraction, lid lag, swelling, redness (), conjunctivitis, and bulging eyes (exophthalmos). It occurs most commonly in individuals with Graves' disease, and less commonly in individuals with Hashimoto's thyroiditis, or in Specialty: Ophthalmology.

Also called Graves' disease, thyroid eye disease is a condition that occurs when the immune system malfunctions, causing it to attack healthy tissues including the thyroid gland. In response, the gland produces excess amounts of hormones, causing a condition called hyperthyroidism or overactive thyroid/5(). Graves’ ophthalmopathy (also known as Graves’ orbitopathy or thyroid eye disease) occurs as a spectrum of disease ranging from subclinical enlargement of the extraocular muscles in most patients with this condition to disfiguring and vision-threatening involvement of the entire orbit in an unfortunate few. 1 The rate and degree of disease. Graves' Disease Support Group. Graves-Basedow disease is a medical disorder that may manifest several different conditions including hyperthyroidism (over activity of thyroid hormone production), infiltrative exophthalmos (protruberance of one or both eyes and associated problems) and infiltrative dermopathy (a skin condition usually of the lower extremities). If you want more information on this condition, the best book I have read so far on this topic is called “Thyroid Eye Disease: Understanding Graves’ Ophthalmopathy”, which was written by Elaine Moore.
