Hyperthyroidism is a condition where excessive amounts of thyroid hormones are secreted by an overactive thyroid gland and released into the blood stream. The thyroid gland produces two main hormones, the T3 and T4. To have hyperthyroidism means that it affects your entire body. Imagine something related to the word hyper it; means fast or full or of a lot of energy. When there is the presence of hyperthyroidism, these hormones can speed up your metabolism. The excess hormone can in turn lead to rapid metabolism and excessive weight loss, nervousness, irregularity in heart functions and that of other vital organs, etc.

Sometimes the symptoms of the condition can remain silent for too long and one might not even know about the prognosis till much later. The symptoms of hyperthyroidism can also mimic those of other health conditions. There is a possibility that one gets to know about the condition while getting treated symptomatically for some other health crisis.
