Many people now suffer from hyperthyroidism, which is a common thyroid disease. After everyone falls ill, most of them will have major symptoms of the neck. Everyone should pay attention to thyroid diseases, and must carry out scientific treatment, so as not to cause great harm to the body. So, is goiter hyperthyroidism?
Thyroid enlargement is not necessarily hyperthyroidism, and the two cannot be equated. When suffering from hyperthyroidism, there may be symptoms of goiter, the specific performance of which is the thickening of the neck. However, the occurrence of goiter is probably caused by non-hyperthyroidism factors, so we should not confuse the two.
If you have symptoms of goiter, it is likely to be simple goiter. If the goiter is accompanied by abnormal symptoms of thyroid function, such as hyperthyroidism, it is often referred to as hyperthyroidism, which is a common disease.
If you find that you have goiter, you need to go to the hospital for examination to confirm the specific cause. Don’t take hyperthyroidism drugs by yourself, because goiter may also be caused by other factors. However, there are great differences in treatment methods for goiter caused by different reasons. For the symptom of goiter, it is necessary to find the cause and treat it fundamentally.
