Medical terms related to Thyrotoxicosis or mentioned in this section include:

  • Amenorrhea: Absence of menstrual periods.
  • Amiodarone -- Teratogenic Agent: There is strong evidence to indicate that exposure to Amiodarone during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Carbimazole -- Teratogenic Agent: There is strong evidence to indicate that exposure to Carbimazole during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Choriocarcinoma: Rare cancer of the placenta
  • Endocrine symptoms: Symptoms affecting the endocrine system such as hormones.

  • Graves disease: A condition which is an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid resulting hyperthyroidism
  • Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: Hashimoto thyroiditis is characterized by the destruction of thyroid cells by various cell- and antibody-mediated immune processes. Patients with Hashimoto thyroiditis have antibodies to various thyroid antigens, the most frequently detected of which include antithyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO), antithyroglobulin (anti-Tg), and, to a lesser extent, TSH receptor-blocking antibodies.

  • Proptosis: This occurs when there is bulging or displacement of the eye anteriorly.
  • Subacute Thyroiditis: A self-limiting, virally induced inflammation of the thyroid characterised by a febrile illness and swelling of the thyroid, with subsequent damage to the thyroid tissue causing leakage of thyroid hormones into the circulation
  • Subacute granulomatous thyroiditis: Subacute thyroiditis is a self-limited thyroid condition associated with a triphasic clinical course of hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and return to normal thyroid function.
  • Tachycardia: Heart rate greater than 100 beats per minute.
  • Testicular Cancer: Cancer (malignant) that develops in the tissues of one or both testicles.
  • Thyroid activity increased: A condition which is characterized by an increase in thyroid activity
  • Thyroid problems: Any condition which affects the thyroid
  • Thyroid symptoms: Symptoms affecting the thyroid gland
  • Thyroiditis: Inflammation of the thyroid gland.
  • Thyrotoxicosis factitia: A factitious disorder causing thyrotoxicosis by ingestion of thyroid hormone pills.
  • Thyrotoxicosis in pregnancy: Overactivity of the thyroid gland in a woman who is pregnant
  • Weight loss: Loss of body weight.
