Treatments for Hyperthyroidism

  • Antithyroid drugs: These are drugs prescribed to slow down the production of thyroid hormones. They are also called thyrostatics.
  • Radioactive iodine: is an oral medication that your overactive thyroid cells absorb. The radioactive iodine damages these cells and causes your thyroid to shrink and thyroid hormone levels to go down over a few weeks. This usually leads to permanent destruction of the thyroid, which will cure hyperthyroidism.
  • Beta-blockers: A patient suffering from hyperthyroidism may also obtain immediate temporary relief before permanent treatment can take place. Beta-blockers only relieve the symptoms and do not treat hyperthyroidism or any of its long-term effects if left untreated.

Treating Hypothyroidism

Hormone replacement: This is the most common way of treating hypothyroidism and entails administering a synthetic long-acting form of thyroxine.
