Battle with Graves’ disease
Ford is diagnosed with Graves’ disease. It is an autoimmune disease that results in an enlarged thyroid. She noticed changes in her body including weaknesses, an increase in body temperature, etc. Moreover, she collapsed twice in the set of Murphy Brown. This made her realize that she should see a doctor. She went to see her personal doctor and after more than two hours, the doctor found out that she had a malfunctioning thyroid.
Her doctor prescribed medication to regulate her thyroid hormone levels which she took and it was cured. However, after six years, once again, the same problem came and she once again visited her doctor. He gave her the same medication but this time it did not work. The doctor then said that she would have to lose her malfunctioning thyroid. She had two options: remove the thyroid surgically, or kill the thyroid using radioactive iodine treatment.
She took the second option. After her diseased thyroid had been destroyed, the doctor needed to replace the hormone her body should’ve been producing normally. Thus, she was placed on a synthetic thyroid hormone replacement therapy. From then, she started taking one pill every day to replace the thyroid hormone her body couldn’t make naturally.
It has been more than 16 years since she started taking the medicine and she still takes it at the same time each morning.
