Indicators of the quality of life in women with Graves’ disease after radioactive iodine treatment
Background. The purpose of the research was to evaluate the quality of life in women with Graves’ disease after radioactive iodine therapy. Materials and methods. We have examined 79 women with Graves’ disease after radioactive iodine treatment. The first group included 23 patients in euthyroid state, the second one — 56 women with hypothyroidism. The control group consisted of 15 women without thyroid pathology. Results. Women with Graves’ disease had a deterioration in the quality of life manifested by low indexes of both physical (by 30.3 %) and psychological (by 26.6 %) components of health. Conclusions. After radioactive iodine therapy, there was a significant improvement in the quality of life in women with Graves’ disease, and the total physical component increased by 38.2 %, psychological — by 33.4 %. Before treatment, the quality of life of women with Graves’ disease was significantly lower compared to the control group.
