The Healing Period For People With Hyperthyroidism?
I want to ask how long it lasts for people who have hyper thyroid .. And can they be cured .. Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which your thyroid gland (which is located in the middle of the neck) produces too much hormone. This excess hormone condition can speed up the body's metabolic processes and cause weight loss, fast and irregular heartbeat, excessive sweating, anxiety and tension, overheating and irritability or irritation.
Among the conditions that have been linked to increased thyroid hormone levels in the body are:
Graves' disease. This condition occurs due to an abnormality of the immune system and one of them is the eyeball that looks protruding out. Thyroiditis. It is an inflammatory condition of the thyroid gland due to infection with certain bacteria, viruses or antibodies. Drug side effects. Use of drugs containing iodine such as amiodarone can cause an increase in thyroid levels. Cancer.
When a person is suspected of hyperthyroidism, the doctor will usually ask the person to check the levels of thyroid hormones, such as T3, T4 and TSH. Abnormalities in these numbers indicate an abnormality in the person's thyroid gland. This examination can also be used to control the progress of treatment for people with hyper or hypothyroid conditions. Other supporting examinations such as CT scan, MRI, ultrasound, as well as thyroid scans can be done if necessary.
Regarding your question, we cannot answer with certainty because we did not check it directly and do not know the cause. Because of course, hyperthyroidism that occurs due to cancer will have different resistance to the body due to drug side effects.
Likewise with the possibility of recovery. If it is caused by pregnancy, or a side effect of drugs, the chances of recovery are clearly greater than that caused by thyroid cancer that has spread. So to find out the answers to these two questions, it would actually be more fitting if you ask directly with an internal medicine specialist who treats you.
However, in general, if it is not caused by cancer, this condition has a very good life expectancy and can be controlled and may even be cured, although not immediately with just one treatment. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
