TOP Doctors for Hyperthyroidism
Thyroid hyperfunction (hyperthyroidism) leads to an overproduction of thyroid hormones and increased levels of thyroid hormone in the blood.
The most important causes of hyperthyroidism are thyroid autonomy and Basedow's disease. Sometimes thyroiditis, such as of Hashimoto's thyroiditis in certain stages of inflammation to hyperthyroidism.
Finally, it may also be that patients take too high a dose of thyroid hormones because of the treatment of other thyroid diseases or after radioiodine therapy or surgery.
Hyperthyroidism often results in a visible enlargement of the thyroid, which is located in the front neck area. This swelling on the neck is called a goiter. Sometimes the entire gland is not swollen, but a knot is palpable or visible. However, hyperthyroidism may also exist without a goiter or a nodule - and a goiter or thyroid nodule is not always associated with hyperthyroidism.
Mild hyperthyroidism can sometimes go away without treatment. However, excessive hormone production in the thyroid gland is usually slowed down by tablets, the so-called antithyroid drugs. In Basedow's disease, it is possible to normalize thyroid function by prolonged intake of antithyroid drugs. If this fails, the gland is surgically removed or treated with radioiodine. Radioiodine therapy involves radioactive iodine, which inserts itself into the thyroid gland and destroys the overactive cells.
If the thyroid hyperfunction is based on an enlarged gland with thyroid autonomy, thyroid gland "calmed" with thyrostatic drugs is usually surgically removed. If surgery is not possible or the gland is not greatly enlarged, radioiodine therapy is more likely.
