Q & A EPISODE

My Thoughts on Tepezza and Thyroid Eye Disease

Often associated with Graves’ Disease, thyroid eye disease is a condition that can bring about symptoms such as eye-bulging, pain, difficulty closing the eye, and double vision. Although most cases are mild, some people experience moderate to severe symptoms which may require conventional treatment.

Now that Tepezza has been in use for a few years, I’m sharing my thoughts on whether it’s a suitable treatment option and the primary considerations you should be aware of before choosing Tepezza.

 

During this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • The connection between thyroid eye disease and Graves’ disease
  • The role of insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF-1R) in the development of thyroid eye disease
  • How Teprotumumab (brand name Tepezza) works in reducing symptoms of thyroid eye disease
  • Tepezza versus other thyroid eye disease treatments
  • Risks versus benefits of Tepezza as a treatment option
  • Recognizing that Tepezza doesn’t address the underlying causes of thyroid eye disease
  • Who should consider using Tepezza
  • Why I recommend a natural approach when possible

 

As always, I hope you found this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
