The Function Of The Methyl Prednisolone Drug In Patients With Thyroid Disease In The Eye?
methyl prednisolone in the diagnosis of the thyroid in the eye to treat it huh … ??
Good evening, thanks for the question
Graves' disease is a common cause of hyperthyroidism. Graves' disease can also attack the eye, which causes inflammation in the eye structure, eye muscles, and tissue around the eye. This condition is called thyroid eye disease or Graves' ophthalmopathy. Symptoms can include red eyes, dry eyes, bulging eyes outward, and double vision.
Because the underlying process is an inflammatory condition, the treatment is given steroids which have very strong anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties. Treatment with steroids can be oral or injection. Methylprednisolone itself is a type of steroid.
In severe eye disorders in Graves' disease, the healing response is satisfactory at 60% using high-dose steroids. According to research patients who undergo long-term steroid treatment for 4-6 months showed improvement in eye symptoms and vision quality also improved. However, because long-term steroids are also at risk of side effects, close monitoring by a doctor is needed during high-dose steroid treatment.
That's all, hope you can help
