People With Thyroid Disease Feel Sick When They Forget To Take Medication?
Thank you Anasby for your question on the HealthReplies.com forum, thyroid disease is a condition in which a disorder of the thyroid gland affects the amount of thyroid hormone produced, either excessive or deficient. Patients with excess thyroid hormone usually experience several symptoms such as:
- increased heart rate (palpitations)
- easily agitated
- sweating a lot
- weight loss
- moods quickly change
In this condition, several drugs can be given which are useful in controlling the amount of thyroid hormone and reducing other symptoms such as palpitations. The treatment of thyroid disease is quite long and can take months or even years depending on the sufferer's response. In addition, if this treatment responds well, the dosage can be decreased. Therefore, in such a case you should be able to advise the mother to still be able to consult a specialist in internal medicine to evaluate the response to treatment that is being undertaken.
