What happens when you produce too much thyroid hormone?
In my last post, I talked about producing too little thyroid hormone. Now let’s talk about what happens when you produce too much.
Do you often feel out of breath or short of breath?
You might have trouble keeping weight on.
Do you feel like your eyes look like they might pop out of your head?
You might feel like you get tremors or shakes or heart palpitations.
You might sweat excessively or feel very hyperactive all the time.
You might be losing your hair.
You might have a swelling in your neck caused by an overactive thyroid gland.
In combination, these can be symptoms of an overactive thyroid. If left unchecked, an overactive thyroid / hyperthyroidism can be life threatening.
If this is you, I would encourage you to get your thyroid hormones checked as soon as possible!
