Hyperthyroidism

Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) is a condition in which your thyroid gland produces too much of the hormone thyroxine. Hyperthyroidism can significantly accelerate your body’s metabolism, causing sudden weight loss, a rapid or irregular heartbeat, sweating, and nervousness or irritability.

SYMPTOMS MAY INCLUDE:

  • Fatigue
  • Feel nervous, moody, weak, or tired.
  • Have hand tremors, or have a fast or irregular heartbeat, or have trouble breathing even when you are resting.
  • Sweat a lot, and have warm, red skin that may be itchy.
  • Have frequent and sometimes loose bowel movements.
  • Have fine, soft hair that is falling out.
  • Lose weight even though you are eating normally or more than usual.


In addition, some women have irregular menstrual cycles or stop having periods altogether, and some men may develop enlarged breasts.

The symptoms of hyperthyroidism are not the same for everyone. Your symptoms will depend on how much hormone your thyroid gland is making, how long you have had the condition, and your age. If you are older, it’s easy to mistakenly dismiss your symptoms as normal signs of aging.

If you do not treat your hyperthyroidism, you may:

  • Lose weight because your body’s metabolism is faster.
  • Lose weight because your body’s metabolism is faster.
  • Have heart problems such as rapid heart rate, atrial fibrillation, and heart failure.


In rare cases, hyperthyroidism can cause a life-threatening condition called thyroid storm, which develops when the thyroid gland releases large amounts of thyroid hormones in a short period of time. Thyroid storm usually happens after you have had a serious infection or you have had a lot of stress in your life.

Treatment:
The good news is that accurate thyroid function tests are available to diagnose hyperthyroidism and several treatment options are available if you have hyperthyroidism. Doctors use anti-thyroid medications and radioactive iodine to slow the production of thyroid hormones. Sometimes, treatment of hyperthyroidism involves surgery to remove part of your thyroid gland. Although hyperthyroidism can be serious if you ignore it, most people respond well once hyperthyroidism is diagnosed and treated.
