Hyperthyroidism Treatments

Hyperthyroidism: Treatments Inroduction

There is no way to prevent hyperthyroidism. However, with prompt recognition and treatment, high levels of thyroid hormone can be returned to normal levels in the body. With regular medical care and monitoring of hyperthyroidism, many people live active, normal life spans.

Hyperthyroidism may be treated with medications called beta blockers, which can minimize some symptoms, such as rapid heart rate and anxiety. Anti-thyroid medications can also be prescribed to decrease the overproduction of thyroid hormones. In some cases, medication treatment may cure hyperthyroidism.

Surgery may also be done to remove the overactive thyroid gland in some cases of hyperthyroidism. This can cure the disorder. For some patients, treatment with radioactive iodine may be done. In this treatment, liquid radioactive iodine is swallowed, which acts upon the thyroid to control over-activity and overproduction of thyroid hormone.
