Im new to autoimmune disorders. Recently diagnosed with Graves Disease and I wonder if it was is causing my sleep/mood/ anxiety and menstrual issues.

Starting eliminating bread and pasta from my diet and lowering my sodium intake.

Im chronically hungry because of the disorder and think it was caught early. Start meds on Friday.

I was diagnosed with graves disease at 24. I was also hungry and couldn't keep enough calories in. What meds are you starting? I remember being put on propanolol a blood pressure med to keep my heart from beating too fast. Then I had the radio iodine and radiation. I't definitely messes up your mood and anxiety because your whole metabolic rate is high. I couldn't sleep much either. Hope you get good treatment with your doctors.

I am on a low dose methimazole. My heart and blood pressure have been barely affected and are in normal range. I currently take low dose mirtazipine and Seroquel which is helping me sleep and keep weight on.
