I have sub clinical hyperthyroidism. Will a partial thyroidectomy cure my symptoms and disease?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Probably not

Removing part of the thyroid is a bit extreme and also may not even help as the hyper functioning part of the gland may not be removed.

In brief: Other options

Subclinical hyperthyroidism is slightly high levels of thyroid hormone (low tsh) and no symptoms.
If you are having symptoms, there are medical therapies that should be tried first.
