      There is a lot of speculation about what causes Graves. They really don’t know except that it is a result of an immune system going crazy. It depends on who you talk you. I have heard a explanation which sounded reasonable to me. I read that due to a constant contact with some external stressors and just stress in ones life can cause a person’s immune system to go into overdrive because of this continuous fight against these stressors and therefor effects different systems (depending on the stressor) in the body. I was told by my endo that the fact that Barbara and George Bush had graves was a coincidence. But, as I said no one really knows the answer to this so if you have experienced weight loss without any apparent reason, maybe you should get checked too.
