Is Hyperthyroid Disease Contagious?
I want to ask the doctor, is hyperthyroid disease contagious? and if transmitted through anything? thank the doctor
Hello Bang Utha, thank you for asking.
Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the levels of hormones produced by the thyroid gland, increase above normal. This condition is not contagious. The cause is not always known, but in some conditions hyperthyroidism can be preceded by cysts or thyroid nodules. You don't need to worry because hyperthyroidism won't be contagious.
Thyroid hormone is a hormone that regulates metabolic rate. This excess hormone causes various symptoms such as:
Tremor Easily hungry Weight gain is difficult to increase Uncomfortable in hot temperatures Recurrent diarrhea Anxious Insomnia palpitations Consult with a physician in this regard. The diagnosis is made based on the results of physical examination and test results of thyroid hormone levels. Treatment will be adjusted to the results of the doctor's examination.
Thus the brief information that I can give, hopefully useful. Regards.
