Its imbalance can lead to various complications, such as thyroid cancer, an abnormally high production of thyroid hormones in the blood (hyperthyroidism) or, conversely, hypothyroidism.

This clinical syndrome generally occurs in subjects between 30 and 40 years old and affects approximately 5 million people.

Causes of Hyperthyroidism

The pituitary gland is involved in the functioning and regulation of the hormones produced by the thyroid gland.

Calcitonin, triiodothyronine, thyroxine, these thyroid hormones circulate in the blood and control heart rate, muscle energy, blood pressure, weight, reflexes, body temperature and regulate cell metabolism.

In addition to thyroiditis or inflammation of the thyroid gland, other autoimmune conditions, including Basdow’s disease (in 80% of cases), are the main causes of hyperthyroidism.

As a result of abnormal antibody production by the immune system, Basdow’s disease is characterized by exophthalmos (abnormal bulging of the eyes), and sometimes by edema in the front of the leg.

Symptoms affected by hyperthyroidism

As symptoms affected by hyperthyroidism, they are recurrent: digestive disorders followed by diarrhea/contraction and weight loss (despite a normal diet).

There are also heart conditions with tachycardia, stress, menstrual and sleep disorders.

Finally, muscle and sexual weakness, brittle hair, water retention, swelling in the neck, hot flashes, headaches…
