  1. In one point in their life, 75% will deal with a form of Grave’s Disease. It is imperative to spread the awareness and extend the medical research of this disease. As I read through your website, I noticed that your organization shares the same passion for awareness within Grave’s Disease, that we do here, at Disease.com. Disease.com is a website which is dedicated to the preventions and treatments for all diseases. In order to spread the awareness of this disease, we ask if you could please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button; it would be much appreciated. We can not allow 3 out of 4 women to suffer, so lets spread the awareness. If you want more information on that please email me back with the subject line as your URL

      Hi Claudia,

      yes, it’s better to change your doctor, if she doesn’t seem reliable..You need a doctor- partner to work with you, it’s not an easy thing to battle Graves’ disease, I know that. Palpitations are just a symptom of Graves’, that’s all, you can also take Lemon Balm tea or do breathing exercises- usually they help a lot.

    Dear Svetla, I am so happy to see your blog and all the useful information you put in it. I have been suffering from Graves disease since I was 16 years old. I refused to take medication and lived with it fine. Deep down in me and my heart I always felt operation isn’t the solution and neither are the medications. After my second child I started seeing the endocrinologist again and met a wonderful person who’s helped me see inside myself and change my attitude and views. I’ve started meditation and decided to for once take my medication as told. So after 6months my blood test results came out great and the Doctor took me off medications. After 6months without medication my blood test results came out a little off so the doctor put me on medication again. We talked a bit about my options and I’ve told him clearly I will not get an operation. He talked to me about the RAD/RAI iodine treatment option (which I also refuse to do) of course first I will be on the medicine for a whole year and then we will see. Do you have any suggestions? what is your last name I am considering buying one of your books. One thing I know is I will cure this disease without an operation or iodine treatment. I would refuse the medication too but I thought to myself give it a shot and work on myself while I’m taking them. It might help my body to understand how it needs to function.

      Hi Tina,

      I am really glad to hear that you decided to put off RAI or thyroidectomy, both have numerous side effects which are for a life time. Reading your story I think that your endocrinologist was too quick to take you off the medications completely. He/she should’ve checked the thyroid antibodies which are the most important to achieve “euthyroid”condition, and they are the last to improve after all other thyroid test results become normal. Or, if this is not the case, stress could trigger the disease for the second time. In all cases, you made the right decision to stay on medication, which will buy you some time. I am sending you the link to all my books, feel free to check the articles on my website, they can give you a lot of information as well.



      All the best,

    Hi Svetla,

    I’m 18 years old and was recently diagnosed with Grave’s disease. We are still trying to figure out the correct amount of medication for me to take- but as a result of the grave’s disease I now suffer from mild thyroid eye disease in one eye only.

    I have started taking selenium (I only started about 2 days ago) but I have really lost hope and am in an extremely negative place and am incredibly depressed because of my slightly bulging eye. Do you think that it will go back to normal if, as well as taking the selenium, I eat healthily, and do all of the recommended things to help with the eye?

    How long did it take you for your eyes to settle down?

    I would really love to hear from you.

    Thank you,

      Hi Francine,

      there is a good chance your Thyroid eye disease to get better and your eyes to get to normal. My eye was severely protruded, it wasn’t mild. But have in mind that this will happen after your thyroid antibodies get within the normal ranges, and that may take some months. So, be patient, stay positive and don’t loose hope, things will get better for sure.
