In brief: It is serious
Graves disease is an elevation of the thyroid hormone that causes wieght and hair loss, elevated blood pressure and an increase in metabolism when untreated.
In pregnancy untreated graves can affect the pregnancy or go on to what is called "thyroid storm" which can lead to cardiac arrest. This pregnancy is best managed with a maternal fetal medicine and ob-gyn.
