Description

Thyroid diseases are among the most common conditions worldwide. It is estimated that almost 20% of the Polish population has thyroid dysfunction, and 0.14% of Poles are affected by Graves-Basedow disease.
Antibodies against TSH-stimulating receptors play an essential role in the induction of hyperthyroidism in Graves-Basedow disease. These antibodies directly stimulate thyrocytes to produce hormones, i.e. thyroxine and triiodothyronine,and their persistence in serum is associated with active disease. There are also other antibodies in the blood of people with Graves-Basedow disease that recognize different antigenic structures of thyroid follicle cells. These antibodies include anti-thyroglobulin antibodies, anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies, and anti-membrane antibodies. Graves' disease is a chronic condition with periods of exacerbation and remission, with a highly variable clinical picture
Graves' disease manifests itself in genetically predisposed individuals, often under the influence of unfavorable external factors, such as stress, excessive iodine supply or infections - both viral and bacterial. The genetic predisposition of the condition in question is supported by family occurrence, coexistence with other autoimmune diseases, such as type 1 diabetes, Addison-Biermer anemia, vitiligo, et al.
