In opposition to hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism determines the lowering of TSH levels and the probable increase in thyroid hormones, FT3 and FT4.

Symptoms are defined according to different levels...

In the most serious cases, hyperthyroidism is characterized by restlessness, anxiety, tachycardia, increase in blood pressure and even exophthalmos, that is, the protrusion of eyeballs which is responsible for the well-known distortion of the face somatic features.

The conventional therapy used to cure hyperthyroidism makes use of a drug which has a toxic impact on the thyroid and which, due to its specific effect on the latter, is able to paralyze its functioning; obviously, once the thyroid functioning is reset, the thyroid hormone is prescribed as well.

As regards the treatment of hyperthyroidism, Biological Medicine makes use of the diagnostic and therapeutic means which have been described in the Hypothyroidism section in order to restore the healthy functioning of the thyroid gland, thus pursuing the same aim set in case of hypothyroidism.
