Hyperthyroidism is a medical condition characterized by the overproduction of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland. These excess hormones can speed up the body’s metabolism and lead to a range of symptoms and health issues. It is often referred to as an overactive thyroid.


Hyperthyroidism sometimes looks like other health problems. That can make it hard to diagnose. It can cause many symptoms, including:

  • Losing weight without trying.
  • Fast heartbeat, a condition called tachycardia.
  • Irregular heartbeat, also called arrhythmia.
  • Pounding of the heart, sometimes called heart palpitations.
  • Increased hunger.
  • Nervousness, anxiety and irritability.
  • Tremor, usually a small trembling in the hands and fingers.
  • Sweating.
  • Changes in menstrual cycles.
  • Increased sensitivity to heat.
  • Changes in bowel patterns, especially more-frequent bowel movements.
  • Enlarged thyroid gland, sometimes called a goiter, which may appear as a swelling at the base of the neck.
  • Tiredness.
  • Muscle weakness.
  • Sleep problems.
  • Warm, moist skin.
  • Thinning skin.
  • Fine, brittle hair.

Older adults are more likely to have symptoms that are hard to notice. These symptoms may include an irregular heartbeat, weight loss, depression, and feeling weak or tired during ordinary activities.


Hyperthyroidism is primarily caused by:

  • Graves’ Disease: An autoimmune disorder in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the thyroid gland, leading to excess hormone production.
  • Toxic Nodular Goiter: The presence of nodules (lumps) in the thyroid gland that produce excess thyroid hormones.
  • Thyroiditis: Inflammation of the thyroid gland, which can release stored hormones into the bloodstream.

Diagnosis of Hyperthyroidism

  • Blood Tests: Measuring levels of thyroid hormones (T3 and T4) and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) in the blood.
  • Imaging: Thyroid scans or ultrasounds to visualize the thyroid gland and any nodules.

Who Needs Hyperthyroidism Treatment

Anyone diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, especially if experiencing symptoms or complications, should seek treatment.

When to See a Specialist

If you suspect you have symptoms of hyperthyroidism, consult a healthcare provider. They can refer you to an endocrinologist, a specialist in hormone-related disorders, for further evaluation.


  • Diagnosis: Your healthcare provider will perform blood tests and imaging to confirm hyperthyroidism and determine its cause.
  • Treatment Options: Treatment may include:
  • Medications: Antithyroid drugs to reduce hormone production.
  • Radioactive Iodine: A radioactive form of iodine to shrink the thyroid gland.
  • Surgery: Surgical removal of part or all of the thyroid gland (thyroidectomy).

Road To Recovery

Effective treatment can lead to a significant improvement in symptoms and an overall better quality of life.

Risk Management

  • Medication Adherence: It’s crucial to take prescribed medications as directed.
  • Regular Monitoring: Regular follow-up appointments to assess hormone levels and adjust treatment as needed.

Benefits of Hyperthyroidism Treatment

  • Symptom Relief: Effective treatment can alleviate symptoms like rapid heartbeat, weight loss, and nervousness.
  • Preventing Complications: Treatment can prevent complications such as heart problems or bone loss.
