Specializes in Family Medicine

Hyperthyroid: Hyperthyroid is a condition of overactive thyroid and usually results in weight loss because it increases the metabolism. One would have to eat far more than usual to gain weight with this condition. I recommend you see your primary care physician and have it treated. An overactive thyroid can cause a number of medical conditions and should not be ignored.
