Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) is a condition in which the thyroid gland produces too much of certain hormones. Similar to hypothyroidism, the team of board-certified providers at the Thyroid Center of New Hampshire in St. Joseph Hospital Endocrinology in Nashua, New Hampshire, treat this very frequently.

Overtime, hyperthyroidism left without treatment can lead to several concerns, including acceleration of the body’s metabolism, unintentional weight loss, and rapid or irregular heartbeat. The signs and symptoms of hyperthyroidism can vary from patient to patient, as well as the severity of the condition. Some of these symptoms include:

  • An enlarged thyroid gland (goiter), which may appear as swelling at the base of the neck
  • Tremor – usually in the hands or fingers
  • Sweating
  • Nervousness, anxiety, or irritability
  • Change in menstrual patterns
  • Rapid/irregular heartbeat
  • Fine, brittle hair
  • Increased sensitivity to heat
