Very interesting! The "Beer Belly" one happened to my mother who had kidney disease. The rest of her body was her usual thin, petite self but her belly bulged as though she were pregnant. I was a teen at the time and  remember asking her if she was...wrong thing to ask.

Interesting, but I think it would be more helpful if you had actual images of what was going on, rather than random stock photos.

Having an overactive thyroid and Grave's disease is pretty much the same thing. Sometimes someone can have Grave's disease and their thyroid be under active. That's usually caused by having the thyroid removed or undergoing RAI (Radioactive Iodine therapy) which kills the thyroid. Which in turn is done because someone has an overactive thyroid.... I have Grave's disease. Hyperthyroid. I have noticed changes in my eyesight over the last 3 years, but no eye bulging yet.
