About the Book

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). This common eye disorder is associated with the autoimmune thyroid disease, Graves' Disease, and also with Hashimoto's thyroiditis, a disorder of hypothyroidism. Thyroid Eye Disease: Understanding Graves' Ophthalmopathy will fill a void for much sought after information on this condition unique to thousands of Graves' patients worldwide. In her book, Moore also personalizes the information by sharing other patients' stories and narratives, helping to validate universal struggles people with this condition face.

Thyroid Eye Disease: Understanding Graves' Ophthalmopathy describes all facets of thyroid eye disease, including:

  • genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that contribute to GO
  • signs, symptoms
  • diagnostic tests
  • risk factors
  • conventional and complementary treatment options, with an emphasis on the role of self-care.
  • complications
  • psychosocial issues of living with GO
