Hyperthyroidism

Hyperthyroidism

The classic symptoms of hyperthyroidism include weight loss, heat intolerance, tremor, palpitations, anxiety, increased frequency of bowel movements, and shortness of breath. Goiter is commonly found on physical examination

Older patients may have fewer classical manifestations of hyperthyroidism. However, weight loss, shortness of breath, and atrial fibrillation occur more commonly in older than younger patients.

The clinical manifestations of hyperthyroidism are largely independent of its cause. However, the disorder that causes hyperthyroidism may have other effects. In particular, Graves' disease causes unique problems that are not related to the high serum thyroid hormone concentrations. These include Graves' ophthalmopathy and infiltrative dermopathy (localized or pretibial myxedema).
