Hi Nur, thanks for your question

Hyperthyroidism is a condition when the thyroid gland (adenoids) overproduces the hormone thyroxine. Because the thyroxine hormone plays a role in the regulation of body metabolism, as a result, in people with hyperthyroidism, various clinical symptoms appear:

enlarged thyroid gland (goiter / goitre)
increased heart rate, even heart rhythm disturbances
weight loss for no apparent reason
excessive sweating (cannot tolerate hot temperatures)
tend to be hyperactive and irritable
shaking / tremor

The diagnosis of hyperthyroidism is confirmed through a physical examination by a doctor who is supported by the results of thyroid function tests. Furthermore, the doctor will prescribe a thionamide class of drugs (either carbimazole or PTU) which aims to suppress the production of the hormone thyroxine and beta-blocker drugs (such as propanolol) to suppress symptoms due to sympathetic innervation due to excessive levels of the hormone thyroxine. Treatment with these drugs lasts for at least 2-3 months. The doctor will conduct a gradual evaluation, both on clinical symptoms and on thyroid hormone function. When thyroid hormone production has been controlled (FT4 and TSHs are within normal ranges), the dosage of these drugs will be gradually decreased.

The results of the thyroid function tests that you convey above are within the normal range or are called euthyroids. In this condition, you should still consult a specialist in internal medicine who usually handles you. Your doctor will gradually decrease the dose of the drug you are currently taking while still evaluating clinical symptoms and performing serial thyroid function tests (every 2-3 months).

Thus, I hope this information is useful
