The main goal of the thyroid gland is to assist the organism in controlling many different parts of the body and muscles. The patients with the Graves’ syndrome are likely to have a bad sleep, especially at night, exhaustion, overloaded feeling, annoyance, sweating, unhealthy heartbeat/pulse, extra sensitivity to the sources of light, double vision, and more. The bowel and body’s surface may also be affected by the disease.
It is possible to diagnose the disease based on several hints. A physical exam is required to identify Graves’ disease. It is recommended to submit blood to let the laborants check whether you have Graves’ disease. Most of the exams try to measure the level of thyroid hormones. There are also imaging exams (CT, MRI) which are effective in detecting this type of disease. In some cases, a radioactive iodine uptake test may be a must to avoid confusion.
