BRIDGET:

With Thyroid Eye Disease I hid from the camera. And I wanted to hide from the world. For years, I thought my TED was beyond help, but then I asked my doctor about TEPEZZA.

ANNOUNCER:

TEPEZZA is the only medicine that treats TED at the source, not just the symptoms. In a clinical study, more than 8 out of 10 patients taking TEPEZZA had less eye bulging.

TEPEZZA is an infusion. Patients taking TEPEZZA may have infusion reactions. Tell your doctor right away if you experience high blood pressure fast heartbeat, shortness of breath or muscle pain. Before getting TEPEZZA, tell your doctor if you have diabetes, IBD, or are pregnant, or planning to become pregnant. TEPEZZA may raise blood sugar even if you don’t have diabetes and may worsen IBD such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis.

BRIDGET:

Now, I’m ready to be seen again.
