Brief Answer:
About hyperthyroidism;

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!
There are 2 main pathologies that cause hyperthyroidism; Graves' disease and Nodular goiter.
Graves' disease is an autoimmune disease that in most of the cases lasts for 12-18 months. The severe the autoimmunity and the younger the age of the patient, the higher the risk to last longer and to be repeated agian. If it persists longer or if it repeats again after some months or year, thyroidectomy or radioactive iodine is recommended.
Left untreated, hyperthyroidism causes cardiac arythmia (high risk for atrial fibrilation) and osteoporosis.
Nodular goiter is treated also with radioactive iodine or surgical intervention, once euthyroidism is achieved with antithyroidien drugs.
Hope the information will help.
Best wishes,
Dr.Mirjeta
