Hyperthyroidism, called overactive thyroid, is when the thyroid gland makes more thyroid hormonal agents than your body requirements. Thyroid hormones manage the way the body uses energy, so they influence almost every organ in your body, even the way your heart beats. About 1 out of 100 Americans ages 12 years and older have hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroidism is more common in people and women older than 60. If you, you are more likely to have hyperthyroidism. It causes stored thyroid hormone to leakage out of your thyroid gland. Taking too much of them can cause your thyroid to make way too much thyroid hormonal agent. This can occur if people who take thyroid hormone medication for hypothyroidism take too much of it. They'll inquire about your symptoms and if they think you might have a thyroid problem, they can schedule a blood test to examine just how well your thyroid is working. You might be referred for more tests to identify the cause if the blood test reveals that you have an overactive thyroid.
