WHAT DOES HYPERTHYROIDISM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

hyperthyroidism

Hyperthyroidism

Hyperthyroidism, often referred to as an overactive thyroid, is a condition in which the thyroid gland produces and secretes excessive amounts of the free thyroid hormones -triiodothyronine and/or thyroxine. Graves' disease is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. The opposite is hypothyroidism, which is the reduced production and secretion of T3 and/or T4. Hyperthyroidism is one cause of thyrotoxicosis—the hypermetabolic clinical syndrome which occurs when there are elevated serum levels of T3 and/or T4. Thyrotoxicosis can also occur without hyperthyroidism. Some people develop thyrotoxicosis due to inflammation of the thyroid gland, which can lead to excessive release of thyroid hormone already stored in the gland. Thyrotoxicosis can also occur after ingestion of excessive amounts of exogenous thyroid hormone in the form of thyroid hormone supplements, such as levothyroxine. Disease management and therapy differ for thyrotoxicosis caused by hyperthyroidism and thyrotoxicosis caused by other conditions. Thyroid imaging and radiotracer thyroid uptake measurements, combined with serologic data, enable specific diagnosis and appropriate patient treatment.
