Hyperthyroid and it’s symptoms

The thyroid is a small gland located around your box and near your voice box. Although it is relatively small in size, the things it does control almost your entire bodily functions. The thyroid gland produces hormones which control the smooth functioning of your brain, heart, metabolism and another major process which is taking place right now in your body at this time. If this gland malfunctions, your entire body malfunctions. Thyroid disorders can range from a small, harmless goiter (enlarged gland) that needs no treatment to life-threatening cancer. The most common thyroid problems involve abnormal production of thyroid hormones. Too much thyroid hormone results in a condition known as hyperthyroidism. Insufficient hormone production leads to hypothyroidism. We will talk about the signs and symptoms of both these conditions so that you can check them off and get your thyroid levels checked as soon as you can.


Hyperthyroidism occurs when your thyroid gland malfunctions and produces too much of the thyroid hormone. This destroys the balance in your body and you experience some or all of these symptoms on a regular basis.
