In brief: Well, it's not good
Bad news about uncontrolled hyperthyroidism include atrial fibrillation (which increases risk of stroke) and osteoporosis (which increases risk of fracture).
That ignores the tremors, anxiety and palpitations. Check out mayo clinic's take on hyperthyroidism http://bit.Ly/mpout.
