Hyperthyroidism Signs and Symptoms
Hyperthyroidism is the result of the thyroid gland overproducing the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine
(T3). Of the two major thyroid problems, hyperthyroidism is the least common. There are a number of different variations of this condition, including Grave’s disease, pituitary malfunctions, toxic adenomas, and more. The main symptoms of hyperthyroidism include:
- Intolerance to heat
- Weight loss
- Hand trembling
- Increased heart rate
- Minimal or absent menstruation
Maintaining the health of your thyroid is important for your overall health. If you suspect that you may be suffering from hyperthyroidism, you should voice your concerns to your physician or healthcare provider.
There are tests that can be performed to determine your thyroid hormone levels, and, depending on those levels, there are steps you can take towards reaching normal levels.
