“Floored by Graves’ disease: a journey from diagnosis to recovery”
MEDTalk is an opportunity for you to network with your industry colleagues and to hear presentations from both a doctor and patient perspective. There is an option for MRII members and non-members to attend. Each presentation is approximately 25 minutes, followed by Q&A.
Graves’ disease is the most common reason why the thyroid gland becomes overactive; symptoms can be very severe and have a significant effect on quality of life. Fortunately, it is treatable with medications, or sometimes surgery or radiation treatment. In this talk, you will hear one woman’s story of being diagnosed with Graves’ disease and how it impacted on all aspects of her life; emotional, mental and physical. Dr Moran will provide an overview of Graves’ disease; why it happens, who is affected, how it is treated and the long term outlook.
|Date / time||Tuesday November 26th, 4pm|
|Venue:||Clayton Hotel, Liffey Valley|
Dr Carla Moran, Consultant Endocrinologist, Beacon Hospital. You will also hear one woman’s story of being diagnosed with Grave’s disease.
