About Hyperthyroidism

Graves Disease 1, also known as thyrotoxicosis, is related to hashimoto thyroiditis and neonatal thyrotoxicosis. An important gene associated with Graves Disease 1 is GRD1 (Graves Disease, Susceptiblity To, 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Thyroid hormones production and peripheral downstream signaling effects and Selenium Metabolism and Selenoproteins. The drugs Methimazole and Lithium carbonate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include thyroid, heart and pituitary, and related phenotypes are hyperreflexia and hyperhidrosis

Major Symptoms of Hyperthyroidism

The main symptoms of Hyperthyroidism include:

1. Persistent palpitations: feeling of accelerated heart rate, chest tightness, palpitations, and even syncope.

2. Weight loss: Because the thyroid gland produces too much thyroxine, the body's metabolism accelerates and energy consumption increases, leading to weight loss.

3. Psychiatric symptoms: anxiety, emotional instability, insomnia, difficulty concentrating, and memory loss.

4. Weight gain: Weight gain occurs as the body breaks down fat for energy.

5. Skin symptoms: The skin becomes dry, rough, flaky, itchy, and the eyes become edematous.

6. Eye symptoms: dry, painful, inflamed, and sometimes swollen eyes.

7. Throat symptoms: sore throat, hoarseness, difficulty breathing.

8. Respiratory symptoms: shortness of breath, wheezing, and coughing.

9. Digestive system symptoms: stomach pain, diarrhea, constipation.

10. Metabolic symptoms: increased heart rate, increased body temperature, numbness in hands and feet. If the above symptoms occur, you should seek medical treatment promptly to obtain correct diagnosis and treatment.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Hyperthyroidism

Suitable lifestyle options for people with Hyperthyroidism include the following:

1. Maintain good eating habits: Hyperthyroidism patients should avoid iodine-rich foods, such as kelp, seaweed, etc. , while controlling total calorie and fat intake.

2. Get enough sleep: Getting enough sleep can help maintain body functions and reduce the symptoms of hyperthyroidism.

3. Reduce stress: Long-term mental stress can lead to hyperthyroidism, so patients should learn to reduce stress and engage in appropriate relaxation and exercise.

4. Quit smoking and limit alcohol consumption: Tobacco and alcohol will stimulate thyroid function and aggravate the symptoms of Hyperthyroidism. Therefore, patients should try to quit smoking and limit alcohol consumption.

5. Avoid irritating foods: Exciting foods such as coffee and spicy foods can aggravate the symptoms of hyperthyroidism and patients should avoid eating them.

6. Supplement an appropriate amount of calcium: Hyperthyroidism patients are prone to calcium deficiency, so patients should supplement an appropriate amount of calcium to maintain bone health.

7. Regularly conduct thyroid function tests: Patients should conduct regular thyroid function tests so that treatment plans can be adjusted in a timely manner and disease progress can be monitored. It should be noted that Hyperthyroidism is a serious disease, and patients need to actively receive treatment and follow the doctor's recommendations while adjusting their lifestyle.
