    Hi Shirley – The ophthalmologist who commented that having hyper/hypo swings can aggravate TED actually does look at her patients’ thyroid lab work, so her comments were from personal observation, rather than a research study.

    One of her other interesting comments was that Graves’ patients who are dealing with multiple doctors are best served if one of the doctors will serve as the point person in coordinating care, and she often ends up taking on that role.

    That’s no doubt a rarity, but you can definitely see how it would really improve the patient’s experience!
