Graves' Disease Resources
Q: I just returned from a trip to my home country, where I was diagnosed
as having Graves' Disease. In the USA my thyroid was first considered hypo and
later hyper, and as time went by, I noticed that my right eye looks bigger and
a little popped out; this is the reason why my doctor asked for a specific test
for Graves' disease.
I live in Greensboro, NC, and I'd like to know if is there a specialist in
this field that I can contact.
Dr. Donnica:You can go to the website for the American
Association of Clinical Endocrinologists and type in your state, town and
zip code and get a referral to one of their members. Another suggestion is to
go to the Doctor
Finder on the American Medical Association website
where you can also search for an endocrinologist in your area.
The National Graves' Disease
Foundation is a great source of information. The web site has bulletin boards
and listings of local support groups.
