Smoking is an important risk factor for the development and progression of thyroid associated ophthalmopathy. One study found that there were very few cases (68 patients, 4 of whom had never been diagnosed with a disease). The incidence of these diseases was very common in the patients with smoking, which was very common in smokers (there were 82 patients in each group, 6% in the study group, 23%). A recent study has shown that smoking is a risk factor for patients with thyroid associated ophthalmopathy, regardless of the choice of treatment for hyperthyroidism (radioiodine or antithyroid drugs). Therefore, for patients with thyroid associated ophthalmopathy, even in the course of treatment of hyperthyroidism should also quit smoking.
