Hyperthyroidism Overview?
Hyperthyroidism as a term refers to any condition that leads to excess in levels of thyroid hormones (T3 & T4) in blood. The resulting condition is called as Thyrotoxicosis. Thyroid hormone functions as a controller of the pace of all of the processes in the body. This pace is called metabolism (how energy is used). If there is too much thyroid hormone, every function of the body tends to speed up and increase the risk of other health issues such as heart disease, bone loss, and problems during pregnancy. That is why any disruption in thyroid hormone functioning can lead to abnormalities in nearly the complete bodily functioning.
What are the causes of Hyperthyroidism? Top
Some common causes of hyperthyroidism include:
  • Graves' Disease (Diffuse Toxic Goiter)
  • Functioning adenoma ("hot nodule") and toxic multi-nodular goiter (TMNG)
  • Excessive intake of thyroid hormones
  • Abnormal secretion of TSH
  • Thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid gland)
  • Excessive iodine intake
Graves Disease: Also known, as diffuse toxic goiter is a condition in which there is generalized over activity of the whole gland leading to increase in production of thyroid hormones. It is one of the most common causes of hyperthyroidism. It has a hereditary link and is more common in women. It is believed to be an autoimmune disease, antibodies in the blood, which stimulate the thyroid to grow and secrete excessive amounts of thyroid hormone, cause it. As these antibodies are produced by bodies own defense mechanism that is why it is said to be an autoimmune disease.

Certain factors can act as triggers for graves disease, these are.
  • Stress,
  • Smoking,
  • Radiation to the neck,
  • Medications, and
  • Infectious organisms such as viruses
  • Functioning adenoma ("hot nodule") and toxic multi-nodular goiter(TMNG) This condition is characterized by over activity of one or more nodule in the thyroid gland
  • Excessive intake of thyroid hormones
  • Abnormal secretion of TSH
    Pituitary governs normal functioning of thyroid hormones. Whenever the blood levels of Thyroid hormones drops TSH (Thyroid stimulating hormone) is released so as to stimulate thyroid gland. But in certain cases (pituitary tumour) causes increase in production of TSH it can lead to hyperthyroidism.
  • Thyroiditis: Inflammation of the thyroid gland can cause increase in blood levels of thyroid hormones it can be caused by certain viral infections and Post-partum(after delivery)
  • Excessive iodine intake: Certain drugs like amiodarone) contain iodine. As thyroid gland uses iodine, its excess can lead to increase in production of thyroid hormones.
What are the sign and symptoms of Hyperthyroidism? Top
As thyroid gland controls the normal functioning of the metabolism of the body in can affect the functioning of nearly all body functions. Its symptoms thus can be varied and depend upon the duration and severity of the hormonal excess. Hyperthyroidism usually begins slowly. At first, the symptoms may be mistaken for simple nervousness due to stress.
As the disease progresses the common symptoms include:
  • Increase in Appetite
  • Excessive sweating
  • Heat intolerance
  • Infertility
  • Increased bowel movements
  • Tremor (usually fine shaking)
  • Nervousness; agitation
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Weight loss when eating well
  • Fatigue
  • Decreased concentration
  • Irregular and scanty menstrual flow
  • Irregular heart rhythms
  • Sleep loss
  • Photophobia, Light sensitivity
  • Thyroid enlargement
  • Lower leg swelling
How is Hyperthyroidism diagnosed? Top
After a complete history and physical examination a doctor may order Blood tests. Thyroid profile a blood test can confirm diagnosis.
Imaging studies like X-ray, CT scan may be done of the neck to diagnose the cause.
What is the role of homoeopathy in Hyperthyroidism? Top
As described in the article above Hyperthyroidismhas multifactor ail causes. Homoeopathy follows an individualistic approach towards patients suffering from Hyperthyroidismwe believe that every individual is different and thus a full in-depth case study is the first step. Then referring to the risk factors the individual was subjected too, a particular line of treatment is adopted. The usual conventional treatment provides only palliation. On the other hand our deep acting constitutional medicine cure the disease in depth rendering the patient free from the disease
A broad criterion of how the homoeopathic medicines act in cases of Hyperthyroidismis mentioned below. The response to treatment can differ from one individual to another patients are advised to consult so that the mode of treatment can be discussed pertaining to their particular case

Relieving Symptoms:
Controlling and curing the underlying disease process
  • If homoeopathic treatment is sought early it helps in preventing the progress of disease and preventing any complications
  • We at DRSS provide our patients with diet charts, exercise schedules and guide them how to modify their lifestyle so that better results can be achieved.
  • Our medicines can be started with conventional treatment depending upon the disease state and case.
  • Homoeopathic medicines if taken under proper guidance from a well-qualified professional are extremely safe and have no side effects.
