Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland produces an excessive amount of thyroid hormone, which controls the body's metabolism. It is also known as overactive thyroid. Symptoms of hyperthyroidism may include weight loss, increased appetite, heat intolerance, sweating, tremors, palpitations, fatigue, and anxiety. It can also cause changes in menstrual cycles and lead to osteoporosis in the long term. Hyperthyroidism can be caused by a variety of factors, including autoimmune disorders such as Graves' disease, thyroid nodules, and inflammation of the thyroid gland. Treatment options include medication to regulate hormone levels, radioactive iodine therapy, and surgery to remove the thyroid gland.
