In this interview, Roger A. Dailey, MD, FACS, Lester T Jones Endowed Chair, oculoplastic surgeon and Chief of the Casey Thyroid Eye Disease Clinic, and Terry F. Davies, MBBS, MD, FRCP, FACE, an endocrinologist and professor of medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, discuss their experience with thyroid eye disease (TED), including diagnosis, management, and the disease’s psychological impact on the patient.
Drs. Dailey and Davies describe symptoms associated not only with TED but also other diseases that could lead to a misdiagnosis. They stress the importance of early identification of the disease as TED treatments have only been shown to be effective during the active phase of the disease. Additionally, they explain how TED has a significant impact on a patient’s personal life—including relationships with family, social interactions, and daily functions such as driving and working. It’s important that these patients have an experienced, trustworthy, and committed team to help them navigate the disease.
