Graves' Disease

  • Graves’ disease is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism in the United States.
  • In Graves’ disease, the immune system stimulates the thyroid gland to make too much thyroid hormone.
  • Common symptoms of hyperthyroidism include nervousness or irritability, fatigue or muscle weakness, heat intolerance, trouble sleeping, hand tremors, rapid and irregular heartbeat, frequent bowel movements or diarrhea, weight loss, and goiter.
  • People with Graves’ disease may also have bulging eyes, a condition called Graves’ ophthalmopathy.
  • Graves’ disease is most often treated with radioiodine therapy, which gradually destroys the cells that make up the thyroid gland. Antithyroid medications and surgery to remove the thyroid are sometimes used.
  • The eye problems associated with Graves’ disease may require separate treatment.
  • A pregnant woman who has been treated with surgery or radioactive iodine prior to becoming pregnant should inform her health care provider so her baby can be monitored for thyroid-related problems later in the pregnancy.

Graves' Disease Diet

Iodine is an essential mineral for the thyroid. However, people with autoimmune thyroid disease may be sensitive to harmful side effects from iodine. Taking iodine drops or eating foods containing large amounts of iodine—such as seaweed, dulse, or kelp—may cause or worsen hyperthyroidism. Sometimes significant amounts of iodine are contained in medications—such as amiodarone, which is used to treat heart problems—or in supplements containing seaweed. Some cough syrups also contain large amounts of iodine.

The thyroid uses iodine to make thyroid hormone, so the amount of iodine consumed influences the amount of thyroid hormone the thyroid makes. In some people, consuming large amounts of iodine may cause the thyroid to make excess thyroid hormone.

Women need more iodine when they are pregnant—about 250 micrograms a day—because the baby gets iodine from the mother’s diet. In the United States, about 7 percent of pregnant women may not get enough iodine in their diet or through prenatal vitamins. Choosing iodized salt—salt supplemented with iodine—over plain salt and prenatal vitamins containing iodine will ensure this need is met.
