Too much thyroid !: Higher than normal thyroid levels in the blood. Condition will suppress tsh, which is easily measured. Too much can cause tachycardia, fine thinning hair, osteoporosis if untreated. This condition requires a medical evaluation.

Most often, the entire gland is overproducing thyroid hormone. This is called Graves' disease. Less commonly, a single nodule is responsible for the excess hormone secretion. We call this a "hot" nodule. Thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid) can also cause hyperthyroidism.
