Graves disease is an autoimmune condition and is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism.  If suspected based on clinical presentation and history, diagnosis is made by checking TSH (which will be low) and T3/T4 (which will be elevated) and ordering appropriate thyroid imaging, which may including ultrasound, thyroid scan, or radioiodine uptake scan. Additionally, testing thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin can be used to confirm Graves.
