Hyperthroidism

Were you looking for information about Hyperthyroidism? Hyperthroidism is a common misspelling of hyperthyroidism.
 
Also referred to as overactive thyroid, hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. This condition affects about 1 percent of the population and is more common in women and in people over the age of 60. Typical symptoms include anxiety, mood swings, and irritability.
 
Treatment options vary. Depending on what is causing the overactive thyroid, a person's age, and their overall health, treatment can range from antithyroid drugs to surgery to radioactive iodine therapy.
