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
  • Mood swings
  • Sudden weight loss without cause
  • Palpitations, irregular, or fast heartbeat
  • Constant thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Heat sensitivity
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Thinning skin
  • Thinning hair
  • Menstrual irregularities
  • The base of your neck may become swollen due to an enlarged thyroid

Common Causes of Hyperthyroidism

In most cases of hyperthyroidism, Graves Disease may be related to your overactive thyroid. Graves Disease is a condition much like an autoimmune disease that mistakenly attacks the thyroid and causes it to produce an excessive amount of thyroid hormones. 

Though the exact cause of Graves Disease is unknown, it is believed to be heredity and tends to affect younger to middle-aged women most. 

Smoking is also thought to increase your risk of developing Graves Disease. 
  • Taking medications that contain iodine, such as Amiodarone, can also increase your risk of developing hyperthyroidism. High levels of iodine in the body can cause the thyroid to produce an excess of thyroid hormones. However, once you cease taking the medication, your thyroid hormone levels will typically return to normal in a matter of months. 
  • Taking large amounts of Tetraiodothyronine via medications can also cause an overactive thyroid. 
  • Sometimes lumps, or nodules, can develop on the thyroid and cause your thyroid to become overactive. These lumps are usually benign but because they contain extra thyroid tissue, they can cause the thyroid to produce excess hormones. 
  • Thyroiditis, which is inflammation of the thyroid, can also cause hyperthyroidism because inflammation can cause the thyroid to produce excess hormones. 
  • Increased levels of human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a substance found in the body, can lead to an overactive thyroid as well. High levels of human Chorionic Gonadotropin typically occurs during a multiple pregnancy, a molar pregnancy, or early pregnancy. 
  • Thyroid cancer can also cause the thyroid to produce an excessive amount of thyroid hormones. 
  • Tumors of the testes or ovaries have also been shown to cause hyperthyroidism.
