Hyperthyroidism

Hyperthyroidism or overactive thyroid results in increased production of thyroid hormones from the thyroid gland. It can be primary or secondary and presents with signs of accelerated metabolism such as weight loss and tachycardia. Decreased tolerance to heat and irritability are also common. Radioactive iodine administration and medication to control heartbeat are recommended.

Anyone here take an antiviral? My nucca chiro has got my tsh 1.37 but I still have some symptoms here and there. We believe all of this started with EBV. I’ve seen one person here take an antiviral and fix their thyroid I just can’t remember who it was.

Anybody have any hair loss or brittle hair issues? If so, how did you address that and did the issues ever resolve?

Who has decided to find out what the underlying issue of their Graves is stemming from? I hate that I am resorting to Methimazole!
