Can you be faster than one of the fastest women in the world?
Gail Devers is a world-famous track star and three-time Olympic gold medalist who has been living with Graves’ disease for more than 30 years. And even though Gail experienced symptoms such as eye pain, bulging eyes and light sensitivity, her doctors never mentioned that Thyroid Eye Disease (TED) could be the cause. In fact, up to 50% of people with Graves’ disease will develop TED.
TED is a serious, potentially vision-threatening condition that can get worse over time. Without treatment, it can lead to serious eye damage. That is why it’s important to get diagnosed as early as possible and to learn about treatment options. In 1996, Gail won an Olympic gold medal for running the 100-meter dash in 10.94 seconds, but it took her a long time to get a TED diagnosis. The hope is that with the help of this experience, you can be “faster” than Gail Devers, and reach your diagnosis in 10 weeks or less.
