Graves' disease is an autoimmune condition that occurs when the hormones produced by the thyroid gland go into overdrive; tetraiodothyrinine (free T-4) and triiodothyronine (free T-3). The excess hormones can cause a number of issues to other parts of the body that can include characteristic 'bulging' eyes, swelling at the base of the neck (goitre) and a greater need to use the bathroom for bowel movements. If well controlled with medication Graves' disease can go into remission over a period of a few months to a few years. It is typically more noted in females and it is believed to be triggered by genetics and stress.
