Hyper Thyroid: Hyperthyroidism aka (overactive thyroid) is a condition in which an individual’s thyroid gland produces too much thyroxine a hormone. Hyperthyroidism can accelerate the body’s metabolism significantly, which can cause sudden weight loss, rapid or irregular heartbeat, sweating, nervousness and or irritability.
A hyper thyroid can mimic other health ailments, which can make it difficult to diagnose. It can have a variety of symptoms that include:
For older people symptoms may not show or be subtle. Also medications called beta blockers, used to treat high blood pressure and other conditions, can mask the signs of hyperthyroidism.
There are various treatment options are available. Doctors use anti-thyroid medications and radioactive iodine to slow the production of thyroid hormones. Sometimes, treatment involves surgery to remove all or part of the thyroid gland. While hyperthyroidism can be serious if it is ignored, most individuals respond well once hyperthyroidism is diagnosed and treated.
