Thyrotoxicosis

Thyrotoxicosis

Hyperthyroidism is also known as thyrotoxicosis. It occurs as a result of an over activity of thyroid gland leading to an increased level of thyroid hormones in the blood. It is classified as primary and secondary hyperthyroidism. Symptoms are palpitations, tachycardia, tremors, unintended weight loss, increased appetite, intolerance to heat, hair loss, fatigue, irritability, diarrhea and mental illness such as psychosis. Grave’s disease is the most common cause of thyrotoxicosis and has an autoimmune basis. Diagnosis mainly relies on thyroid function tests. Management includes antithyroid drugs, radioactive iodine and subtotal or near total thyroidectomy.
