Hyperthyroidism

Disease description:

In the case of hyperthyroidism, the thyroid gland produces too many thyroid hormones, which are energy suppliers for many body cells, thereby accelerating the metabolic processes in the body. The body has too much energy, which leads to typical symptoms like shaking, heart rhythm disturbances, high blood pressure, nervousness, inner restlessness, sleep disturbances, diarrhoea, muscle weakness and pain, sweating, weight and hair loss, menstrual disorders. The autonomy of the thyroid gland (independent, uncontrolled hormone production) can lead to an overactive thyroid gland, and very often a malfunction of the immune system, called Graves’ disease, with its typical symptoms: protruding eyeballs, rapid heartbeat and goitre.
