What is Overactive Thyroid?
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the bottom of the neck that regulates your body's metabolism by releasing a hormone called thyroxine which is how your body converts food into energy. When your thyroid produces too much thyroxine, it is known as hyperthyroidism or overactive thyroid. When this occurs, it can substantially increase your metabolism, which can cause a range of bodily function issues.
Common Symptoms of Hyperthyroidism
The symptoms of overactive thyroid vary and can develop suddenly or increasingly over time. For some individuals, these symptoms are less severe, while others may experience more severe symptoms. However, the most common symptoms of hyperthyroidism include:
- Feeling weak or very tired
- Feeling irritable, anxious, or nervous

- Sudden weight loss without cause
- Palpitations, irregular, or fast heartbeat
- Constant thirst
- Frequent urination
- Heat sensitivity
