The purpose of treatment is to return your metabolism back to normal and to alleviate your symptoms. The treatment that you receive depends on the cause of your condition and the severity of your symptoms. People with subclinical hyperthyroidism may be treated to avoid the symptoms of hyperthyroidism.
Hyperthyroidism is usually treated with antithyroid medications, radioactive iodine, or surgical removal of the thyroid gland. Radioactive iodine treatments destroy the thyroid gland and stop the production of thyroid hormones. Thyroidectomy is a surgery used to remove part or all of the thyroid gland through an incision on the front of the neck. People that receive radioactive iodine treatments or have their thyroid gland removed need to take thyroid hormones for the rest of their lives.
Sometimes people being treated for hyperthyroidism develop hypothyroidism because of the treatments. Hypothyroidism results when your body does not produce enough thyroid hormone. You should tell you doctor if you start to gain weight, feel tired, or feel cold. Your doctor can alter your medication to return your metabolism back to normal.
If you have Grave’s Disease you should not smoke. Smoking can lead to the development of Grave’s Ophthalmopathy. If you have Grave’s Ophthalmopathy you will need to use eye drops to keep your eyes moist. You may also need to wear glasses to protect your eyes.
