An abnormality of the thyroid gland characterized by the pathologically excessive production of thyroid hormones; -- also, the resulting condition characterized by increased metabolism, weight loss, rapid heart rate, high blood pressure, an enlarged thyroid gland and sometimes exophthalmos. It leads to, and may be confirmed by, high plasma levels of triiodothyronine or thyroxin.
Too much thyroid hormone production.
Hyperthyroidism is a condition caused by an over-active thyroid gland which secretes greater-than-normal amounts of thyroid hormones. Symptoms include nervousness, constant hunger, weight loss and tremors. Scientists do not believe hyperthyroidism is caused by radiation exposure.

The Condition"...Generally speaking, from least invasive to most invasive, the treatments include ... Radioactive iodine (I-131), which destroys part or all of the thyroid gland and renders it incapable of overproducing thyroid hormone..." Our Question about iodine consumption"Excessive iodine has a complex disruptive effect on the thyroid and may cause either hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism in susceptible individuals..." Relationship to Iodine Requirement"Hyperthyroidism may occur, particularly in elderly people, due to long term slight iodine deficiency as this may result in additional nodules on the thyroid..." Recommendation Selenium"...It appears that taking selenium without iodine will result in a decrease in production of Thyroxine (T4), although there may be an initial transient increase in T4 to T3 conversion and hence higher T3 and seemingly worse hyperthyroidism..." Recommendation Iodine"Very high doses of Iodine for short periods (about thirty drops daily of SSKI for three weeks) have sometimes produced favorable results in Graves' disease..."
a condition where the thyroid gland produces and secretes more thyroxine or triiodothyronine than normal.
Abnormally increased activity of the thyroid gland, with elevated secretion of thyroid hormones; has not been reported to occur spontaneously in the horse.
excess production of thyroid hormone due to abnormal thyroid gland function, nodules, or excessive thyroid function
or over active thyroid, a condition that occurs when the thyroid gland produces too much of the thyroid hormones.
A common condition in older cats (rare in dogs) that has characteristic clinical signs related to overproduction of the thyroid hormone thyroxine. Can be concurrent with diabetes mellitus.
A disorder characterized by an overactive thyroid gland.
Hyperthyroidism is a condition that can happen when your body produces too much thyroid hormone. Some of the symptoms are cramps, diarrhea, chest pain, weight loss and nervousness.
An abnormality of the thyroid gland in which secretion of thyroid hormone is usually increased and no longer under normal control. Characterised by increased metabolism.
Disorder that is characterized by the excessive production of thyroid hormones.
A condition marked by excessive secretory activity of the thyroid gland.
Increased function of the thyroid gland.
excessive activity of the thyroid gland, characterised by high metabolic rate, heat intolerance and weight loss.
Excessive activity of the thyroid gland, resulting in increased metabolic rate, enlargement of the thyroid gland, rapid heart rate and high blood pressure
A condition characterized by a high level of circulating thyroid hormone. This may cause the "speeding up" of metabolic activity in body cells.
A condition characterized by accelerated metabolism caused by an excessive amount of thyroid hormones (overactive thyroid).
The Condition"...Graves' disease represents a basic defect in the immune system, causing production of immunoglobulins ( antibodies) which stimulate and attack the thyroid gland, causing growth of the gland and overproduction of thyroid hormone..."
Excessive activity of the thyroid gland. Affected animals show increased thirst, weight loss despite an increased appetite and behavioural changes (aggression or hyperactivity). A common condition in older cats.
Medical condition caused by the thyroid gland producing too much thyroid hormone. This leads to an overactive (hyper) thyroid. Signs (what is seen) and symptoms (what a person with the condition feels) include feeling hot even when others do not, weight loss due to increased metabolism, and difficulty sleeping. Sometimes a person with hyperthyroidism gains weight due to an increased appetite. People with this condition may be easily irritated and upset. In the elderly, these signs and symptoms may not occur, making the condition difficult to detect.
overactivity of the thyroid gland, causing nervousness, weight loss, fatigue, and diarrhea
Overproduction of thyroid hormone by the thyroidgland. This leads to an increase in metabolism and can cause estrogen to 'burnup' too rapidly, thereby interfering with ovulation.
Overactivity of the thyroid gland. A condition in which the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. [See Fluoride & the Thyroid
Overactivity of the thyroid gland, leading to overproduction of thyroid hormones. It can make the body's metabolism overactive, leading to symptoms such as weight loss and rapid heart rate.
Thyroid gland, disease of overactive
A condition in which increased levels of the thyroid hormone are found in the bloodstream.
Over production of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland. The resulting increased metabolism "burns up" estrogen too rapidly and interferes with ovulation.
excessive activity of the thyroid gland (which is found in the neck)
Excessive activity of the thyroid gland, resulting in increased metabolic rate, rapid heart rate, and high blood pressure and may cause enlargement of the thyroid gland.
Excess thyroid hormone production. The thyroid hormone works primarily with metabolism regulation. This condition causes high blood pressure, fatigue, nervousness, weight loss, and muscle weakness.
Symptoms of increased metabolism due to excess thyroid hormone in the blood. It may be due to an abnormal thyroid gland or from taking thyroid medication. More about this. (over 10 pages on this).
A metabolic condition that results from an overactive thyroid gland. Symptoms include irritability, nervousness, muscle weakness, weight loss, sleep problems, heat sensitivity, problems with vision, and AF. Back to Previous Page
A condition in which an overactive thyroid gland secretes excessive thyroid hormones, resulting in a rapid heartbeat and other manifestations of speeded-up metabolism.
Over production of the thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland.

Elevated levels of the thyroid hormone. If left untreated, hyperthyroidism can cause problems during pregnancy.
An imbalance in metabolism that occurs from overproduction of thyroid hormone.
over activity of the thyroid, an endocrine gland that regulates all body functions.
A condition, also called Grave's disease, in which the thyroid gland produces more thyroid hormone than the body needs. Symptoms include an enlarged thyroid gland, rapid heart rate, and high blood pressure.
Recommendation Selenium"...Selenium supplementation with 200mcg of sodium selenite may improve the inflammatory activity seen in patients with autoimmune thyroiditis, but whether this effect is specific for autoimmune thyroiditis or may also be effective in other..."
