I can't believe it. Never ever could I have imagined that while on vacation today I would turn on the television, and "The Doctors" would be on with special guest Wendy Williams. And the topic: Graves' Disease!
Wendy was courageously discussing her thyroid disorder, Graves' Disease, on the show. Congratulations to her for having the courage to come forward and talk openly not only about her Graves' Disease, but also about women's health and her experiences.
Few people even know what Graves' Disease is. It is just one of over 100 autoimmune diseases. One in five people in the US have an autoimmune disease. And 70% of those are women.
Thank you to Wendy for coming forward to talk about it, no less on a major television program such as "The Doctors." She is helping increase awareness of not only Graves' Disease, but also women's health. Thank you Wendy!
Thank you Wendy for sharing your story so that others can learn from your experience!
