Weakness Robert James Graves Organs and Body Systems Impacted All organs and body systems would be affected.
Thyroid hormones affect virtually all organ systems since it helps stimulates growth of the body's tissue and responds to increases in metabolic activity
Impact is mainly centered around the thyroid and defects may be a goiter or thyroid nodule(s). How Hyperthyroidism Affects Cells When the thyroid makes a lot of thyroid hormone (T3 and T4) it speeds up the metabolism in the body.
With this in place, you get tired more easily, therefore leading to acting up cells, whether it's eating, jogging, running, or just sitting down or playing video games. Is it Pathogen Caused? This condition is not pathogen caused.
This only caused by what you do or what happens around you.
Lifestyle (Stress, Poor Eating Habits)
Environmental Toxins (Detergents)
Genetic (Very Rare) Diagnosis 1st Test: Thyroid Stimulating Hormone Test
2nd Test If First is Uncertain: Measurement of Radionuclide
3rd Test: Symptomatic Treatment (Only Used If Thyroiditis Is The Case) Treatment Info. Diagnosis Technology Doctor Type They would see and Endocrinologist (A person who specializes in the thyroid, pituitary glands, ovaries, adrenals, testes and pancreas). People In History George and Barbara Bush (43rd President and First Lady)

Oprah Winfrey (Stars in the Oprah Winfrey Show)
Tipper Gore (Wife of Former Vice President Al Gore)
Kelly Osbourne (English Fashion Designer)
Rod Steward (Famous British Singer and Song-Writer) Recovery vs. Fatality Rates Communicable? Inheritable? Curable? Long and Short Term Effects Prevention Bibliography Hyperthyroidism is not communicable, but is possible to be inherited
Hyperthyroidism can be cured using transplant surgery. Short Term Effects: High Pulse, Fast Heartrate
Long Term Effects: Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Mortality, Osteoporosis Fractures These cases only appear if not treated. Must live a healthy lifestyle.
Do not intake too much sodium.
Stay away from toxins. Doctors will either recommend Radioactive Iodine or Antithyroid Medicine.
As a last resort, doctors use surgery and remove the hyperactive thyroid gland and later gives them medication (e.g. Synthroid or Levothyroxin) Fatality Rate with other medication: 1:250 or 500
Fatality Without other Medication: Very Rare
Recovery Without other Medication: Extremely High For most procedures, radioactive iodine is used
