Way too much coffee: Grave's is a disease in which antibodies against the thyroid stimulating receptors are formed. The initiating event is unknown. These antibodies lock on to and continuously stimulate the receptor so the thyroid kicks out thyroid hormone without regulation producing the classic symptoms of insomnia, anxiety, wt loss, increased appetite, dysthermia, hyperdefecation, bulging eyes / stare.
