IContinue reading “My Battle with Graves Disease, part 9: here we go again ?!”

My Battle With Graves Disease, part 9: check-up

In my last blog told about the fact that i was no longer under medical supervision and once again on my own. Hoping that the symptoms will not return and keeping up with my diet and lifestyle. I still am a bit anxious because after the first time i was ‘fired’ i had a relapseContinue reading “My Battle With Graves Disease, part 9: check-up”

My Battle With Graves Disease, part 8: you’re fired!

It has been about 18 months since i stopped taking medicine for the second time due to Graves disease flaring up. It was also time for potentially my last call/visit (again) with the docter depending on the latest bloodtest. But also an uncertain feeling popping up. The call Since we are still in a lockdownContinue reading “My Battle With Graves Disease, part 8: you’re fired!”

My Battle with Graves Disease, part 7: setback scare

When i got back from vacation at the end of august i felt relaxed, ready to go to work. Then i opened my inbox and my first thought was: ‘why can’t things run smoothly for a short while’. The first day back and i already lost my relaxed mindset. Shortly after i started feeling aContinue reading “My Battle with Graves Disease, part 7: setback scare”

My Battle With Graves Disease, part 6

How i feel Since my last blog about graves disease i kept check on how i feel and how much i weigh. Feeling agitated and losing weight (and not sleeping well) are primary indicators something is up. So far so good, despite COVID-19 being around. My weight has been rather stable, between 96 and 98Continue reading “My Battle With Graves Disease, part 6”

My Battle With Graves Disease, Part 5

Here’s an update since my last blog and i want to tell you about stuff that has happened and about the some symptoms which i wasn’t sure about.

My Battle With Graves Disease, Part 4

In my previous blogs [1, 2 and 3] i wrote about my battle from a personal perspective, and also with the idea that it might help some people recognize symptoms and/or have a kindred spirit. This blog is an extension of my journey but focussed more on what i did (and still doing) to fightContinue reading “My Battle With Graves Disease, Part 4”

My Battle With Graves Disease, Part 3

In my previous 2 blogs [part 1, part 2], i started writing about my ‘battle’ with graves disease and ended the last one with the hope that i was done, which wasn’t the case. So in the first half of 2018 a few things were a bit off. I had trouble sleeping through the night,Continue reading “My Battle With Graves Disease, Part 3”

My Battle With Graves Disease, part 2

In my previous post i ended with stating that knowing what’s wrong is only the beginning. This post i wanted to tell what i did next after i found out what was wrong with me. I’m a pretty down to earth guy who follows science and wants to know more about the ‘WHY’ behind myContinue reading “My Battle With Graves Disease, part 2”

My Battle With Graves Disease, part 1

My story probably started way earlier but that’s only in hindsight, let’s start in the summer of 2014 in France. I thought i had a bit too much around the waist and wanted to feel better, despite the fact that i worked out (fitness, running) and biked to work every day. Of course when there’sContinue reading “My Battle With Graves Disease, part 1”
