WHAT IS HYPERTHYROIDISM?
Hyperthyroidism is a pathology by which the thyroid gland, located under the larynx, on the front of the neck, produces too much thyroid hormone, which is in charge of controlling the body's metabolic processes. The function of this hormone is to determine how each cell uses the energy of the body, so if it is produced in excess or, on the contrary, it is not secreted enough, disorders and uncontrollability appear in many functions of the body, such as mood, weight, and physical and mental energy levels.

What are the causes?
The excessive increase in thyroid hormones is called thyrotoxicosis. The main causes that can raise production levels of this hormone and cause hyperthyroidism are:
- Graves' disease: This pathology is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism, coming to represent, according to the Spanish Society of Endocrinology and Nutrition (SEEM), 80 percent of cases. It is an autoimmune disorder that increases the activity of the thyroid gland and increases the levels of the hormone it produces.
- Thyroiditis: When the thyroid gland is inflamed, it increases its activity and secretes a greater amount of hormones. Inflammation of the thyroid gland may be due, among other things, to the consumption of some medications, a viral infection, or pregnancy.
- Increased iodine levels : Iodine is essential for the production of thyroid hormones. It is an element that the body does not produce naturally and that is obtained mainly from foods such as salt, seafood and fish such as tuna or salmon. An excess of iodine , derived mainly from the abuse of foods that contain it, can increase the activity of the thyroid gland and produce hyperthyroidism. The contrast used in some medical tests, and which contains iodine, also raises the levels of iodine in the body.
- Benign (non-cancerous) tumors of the pituitary or thyroid gland: The pituitary is an endocrine gland located at the base of the brain that helps regulate the secretion of hormones from other glands, such as the thyroid.
- Ovarian cancer or testicular cancer.
Who can suffer it?
In principle it can occur at any age. Like the rest of the thyroid diseases, it is more frequent among the female sex. Newborn infants of mothers with Graves-Basedow disease may present with transient hyperthyroidism due to transplacental passage of antibodies.
What are the usual symptoms?
The most common symptoms are:
- Excessive nervousness.
- Insomnia, palpitations.
- Unexplained tiredness.
- Easy sweating, poor heat tolerance.
- Trembling hands
- Weight loss and diarrhea.
The prevention of hyperthyroidism is very limited, since hormonal alterations respond, in most cases, to diseases in which self-care does not influence. Controlling the intake of iodine-rich foods can be a way to reduce the risk of hyperthyroidism. However, it is important to note that iodine is a necessary element to carry out the metabolic processes of the body, so any restriction in the diet must have the approval and monitoring of a specialist.
Hyperthyroidism causes disorders and uncontrollability in many functions of the body, such as mood or weight variations.
Depending on the cause and symptoms, four types of diseases related to increased production of thyroid hormones can be listed :
It occurs when the thyroid becomes inflamed, which is normally due to a viral infection. The inflammation causes an increase in the release of hormones, causing symptoms of hyperthyroidism. In these cases, the disease is temporary and the thyroid returns to its normal levels of hormone production.
Toxic nodular goiter
The gland contains areas that have increased in size and nodules have formed, which produce increased metabolic activity. Sometimes this is caused by the presence of a tumor, usually benign.
Diffuse toxic goiter
It is corresponding to Graves' disease and occurs due to a disorder of the immune system.
Sometimes, after pregnancy and childbirth, thyroid hormone levels are temporarily increased for a few weeks. In many of these cases, hyperthyroidism goes undetected or is detected in a subsequent phase of hypothyroidism (hormone levels drop below normal) that follows delivery and the phase of elevated hormone levels.
The possible alterations of the thyroid gland are not easy to detect since their symptoms can be confused with those of other conditions and diseases, especially those of stress, tiredness, or situations in which there is a lack of any necessary substance or component. for the organism.
The specialist will perform a physical exam to detect visible symptoms, such as the abnormal size of the thyroid gland, trembling of the hands, inflammation, and itching around the eyes or increased heart rate.
A blood test will be used to measure the levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and other hormones that intervene in the metabolic processes of the body, as well as glucose and iodine levels.
Treatment for hyperthyroidism varies depending on the cause and severity of symptoms, to the extent that they can affect the patient's quality of life. All have the objective of controlling the production of thyroid hormones so that there are no alterations in the metabolic processes of the organism. To treat hyperthyroidism you can resort to:
- Pharmacological treatment: In case hyperthyroidism is severe, that is, it produces important alterations in metabolic processes that hinder the patient's quality of life excessively, the use of antithyroid drugs will be necessary. In the case of subacute thyroiditis, the use of beta-blocking and anti-inflammatory drugs is only necessary to alleviate symptoms such as sweating, anxiety, or an accelerated heart rate.
- Radioactive iodine: Radioactive iodine can also be used to destroy the thyroid and stop excessive hormone production.
- Thyroid removal: In some circumstances, it is necessary to remove the gland by surgery. In these cases, the patient must follow a thyroid hormone replacement treatment.
3-morning drinks for hyperthyroidism
Below we present three homemade and natural drinks that we can easily prepare. With it, we can improve thyroid function and alleviate symptoms, in particular hyperthyroidism.
For this same reason, people who suffer hypothyroidism should avoid them or consult their doctor. These ingredients may worsen your symptoms.
1. Radish and lemon juice
As we already know, in hyperthyroidism this gland works excessively. Therefore, there is an overexcitation in which iodine acts as a stimulant. It is necessary to regulate it and, therefore, certain vegetables can be of great help to us.
This radish- based drink will help us inhibit the secretion of thyroid hormone. In turn, the lemon will be useful to detoxify and mineralize our body. In addition, vitamin C will help us relieve headaches and strengthen the immune system.
- 2 radishes
- The juice of 1 lemon
- 1 glass of water (200 ml)
- It's really easy to prepare. The first thing we will do is wash the two radishes well and then cut them into two parts.
- Take them to the mixer together with the glass of water to get a homogeneous juice.
- Now we just need to combine this drink with lemon juice.

2. Infusion of mint and lemon balm
The lemon balm is one of the most appreciated plants in nature for its relaxing effect. In addition, it also stands out for its ability to decrease the activity of the thyroid gland.
- It is important not to consume excessively this infusion. It is enough to include it in our diet two or three times a week. If we drink more than a cup a day it could interfere with our medical treatment.
- The lemon balm, along with the mint, will help us regulate the nerves and enjoy a more relaxed rest. In addition, it also contributes to inhibiting the binding of TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) to the thyroid tissues.
However, if at any time you have doubts about whether to consume this infusion or not, consult your doctor. Now if we drink about 3 cups a week it will not be a problem.
This infusion will be very useful to start the day stress-free and relaxed. If you have had a bad night it will also allow you to relieve the headache and any muscle overload.

3. Strawberry and peach juice
Third, we present a delicious juice. Tasty, nutritious, purifying, and very suitable for regulating thyroid function in case we have hyperthyroidism.
The reason for the benefit of consuming both peaches and strawberries lies once again in goitrogens. These regulate the hormonal gland and reduce the absorption of iodine.
