In the long term, untreated hyperthyroidism increases the occurrence of cardiovascular disease and loss of bone mass.
Signs of Hyperthyroidism
Clinical signs are a large thyroid and increased heart rate, with hot, clammy, thin skin and trembling hands, as well as increased reflexes. If the cause is Graves' disease, it is important to examine the eyes and assess whether the patient has any eye discomfort (gritty sensation in the eyes, double vision, difficulty or pain when moving the eyes).
It is also important to know if other family members suffer from thyroid problems or hyperthyroidism.
