Graves' Disease is a primary cause of hyperthyroidism, a condition where the thyroid gland overproduces hormones, leading to an accelerated metabolism. This can manifest in a range of symptoms as the body's energy use increases rapidly.
Signs and Symptoms
Common symptoms of hyperthyroidism include:
Unintentional Weight Loss
Rapid or Irregular Heartbeat
