Can Hyperthyroidism Recur?
Good night, I arindra want to ask I have been exposed to hyperthyroidism there have been 3 yrs. Before treatment 6 months after I was pregnant, I thought my hyperthyroid had recovered. It turned out that after my child was born 3 months ago my hyperthyroid was worse. After that I routinely went for treatment for 2 years or more, it turns out that it’s rather normal, so I was told to take treatment 2 months once. But I have not been in control for 3 months, how come my body feels symptoms of hyperthyroidism recurring again. Do I have to consume thyrozol again ??? Do I need to check the laboratory again? ??
Hello Arindra, thank you for asking the HealthReplies.com team.
Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the level of thyroid hormone in the body increases or is excessive. This thyroid hormone functions mainly in the body's metabolism and is produced by the thyroid gland located in the front of the neck. Excess thyroid hormones can be caused by autoimmune diseases such as grave disease, thyroid gland malignancies or tumors, thyroiditis, side effects of drugs, or disorders of the central hormonal regulation in the brain. Symptoms and signs experienced by hyperthyroid disease can include shaking / tremor, weakness, significant weight loss, palpitations, protruding eyes, excessive sweating, heatiness, and so on. If symptoms occur like this are accompanied by a history of previous hyperthyroidism, it is necessary to do a direct examination by an internist to determine the current condition and determine the appropriate treatment. The doctor will conduct question and answer, physical examination, and additional examinations, such as examination of thyroid hormone function, thyroid ultrasound, thyroid scan, and so on as needed. Handling will be adjusted to the cause and severity of the disease that occurs. It's best to avoid taking drugs without a prescription and doctor's advice. We recommend that you eat healthy and nutritious foods, especially those rich in vitamin D and calcium, take regular control to the doctor according to the recommended schedule, adequate rest, adequate fluid needs, and avoid smoking and alcohol.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
