Does your heart race all the time? Or are you the kind who can eat all you want without gaining a single pound? Don’t be overjoyed too quickly, especially all you ladies out there, as this may be a sign of hyperthyroidism. The function of thyroid glands is to secrete thyroid hormones to regulate metabolism. If there are problems with the immune system, the thyroid glands may secrete excessive thyroid hormones, making the body feel like it is performing exercise. This causes palpitations, and may even affect the menstrual cycle. Patients can treat hyperthyroidism through medication, iodine intake, traditional surgery or minimally invasive surgery.
