About the book

Hyperthyroidism is a condition caused by physiological, biological, and clinical findings, which occurs when the surrounding tissues are under the influence of high levels of hormones as a result of the excessive elevation of thyroid hormones in the blood, resulting in hypermetabolism. There is a general acceleration in metabolism. The term 'thyrotoxicosis' is sometimes used to describe this syndrome. Symptoms include nervousness, irritability, excessive sweating, increased blood pressure, and respiration, tachycardia, dyspnea, diarrhea, goiter, exophthalmos, and skin changes. Graves' disease is a very common autoimmune disease. Thyrotoxicosis presents with diffuse goiter, infiltrative ophthalmopathy, and thyroid acropathy. Antithyroid drugs, lithium carbonate, radioactive iodine, and dexamethasone are used in the treatment of hyperthyroidism. Thyrotoxicosis; is a picture characterized by hypermetabolism and hyperactivity syndrome, in which serum concentrations of T4, T3, or both are increased. Diseases that cause hyperthyroidism may originate from the thyroid gland, as well as from pituitary or non-pituitary causes. hyperthyroidism; is divided into 3 groups primary, secondary and subclinical hyperthyroidism. Primary hyperthyroidism: It may develop due to Graves' disease, TMNG, TA, and functional thyroid carcinoma metastases. Secondary hyperthyroidism: It is less common. TSH-secreting pituitary adenoma can be shaped due to thyroid hormone resistance syndrome and gestational thyrotoxicosis. Subclinical hyperthyroidism: It is a condition characterized by low TSH levels, but having serum T3 and T4 levels within normal limits.

This book will provide a comprehensive overview of the causes, types, symptoms, associated diseases, and treatments of hyperthyroidism.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Rovan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
