    Hi, Jeannette:

    If you have been recently diagnosed, and are in the process of early treatment, you might be more susceptible to infections etc., simply because hyperthyroidism has run your body down. If, however, you have been stabilized on a treatment for a while, your body has had a chance to start healing, and you should not expect to be sick frequently. Our immune systems are not "compromised" by the Graves antibodies. But we can be weakened by hyperthyroidism. That’s the difference.

    I hope you are feeling better soon,
