In brief: Tsh,T3, T4, symptoms

Blood tests can determine overdose.
Symptoms of excessive thyroid intake include anxiety, heart racing, headaches, hair shedding, shortness of breath, muscle weakness, overactive bowel function (i.e. Frequent bms, loos stools), possibly elevated temperature, weight loss, high blood pressure. Over long period of time, eyes will start to protrude.
