Is Long-term Antithyroid Use the Best Treatment for Graves Disease?

Published Welcome to this video commentary about the long-term use of antithyroid drugs in the management of Graves disease. My name is Angela Leung. I'm an adult endocrinologist at the University of California in Los Angeles and the Veterans Affairs Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System.

She is the medical director of the Thyroid and Endocrine Tumor Program there, and she is active in the Endocrine Society and the American Thyroid Association.
