Thyroid levels are the prevailing diagnose. So, if your thyroid levels are normal, what constitutes you as having Graves' disease?


GL,

January is Thyroid Awareness Month, a month when various organizations put together informational efforts to help us all learn more about thyroid disease here in the U.S.

I think you should have a new test run with a new doctor.  Take Care.

I was diagnosed with Graves in Oct, I know that it is hard to understand everything that you are going through. With me, my thyroid levels were off, but I also had signs with my eyes. one eye seeming to we wide open and pushing out, while the other eye seemed droopy. That was my tell tell sign. I did insist that the Doctor test my TSI level which from my research would show for sure if the diagnosed was a correct one or not. You might ask if you can have your checked. There is another site that I was able to get alot of information on graves disease from if you want to check it out.

It is possible to have Graves Disease and have normal thyroid function.
