Re: Does anyone know?
I don't know for certain, but from what I gather the Graves antibodies she was born with came from you. The antibodies usually clear the baby's system fairly quickly after the birth. I don't *think* she would be at any higher risk than any of your other children of developing autoimmune thyroid disease.
Dx Graves 4/99, tx w/Tapazole & Atenolol - Remission 7/03; Relapse 1/06, back on Tapazole, remission & off meds again 11/06.
