  2. 2. Types of Hyperthyroidism Types of Hyperthyroidism  Hyperthyroidism is the overproduction of thyroid hormones 
  3. 3. Graves' diseaseGraves' disease   The production of too much thyroid hormone. 
  4. 4. Toxic adenomasToxic adenomas   Nodules develop in the thyroid gland and begin to secrete thyroid hormones, upsetting the body's chemical balance; some goiters may contain several of these nodules.  
  5. 5. Subacute thyroiditisSubacute thyroiditis   Inflammation of the thyroid causes the gland to "leak" excess hormones, resulting in temporary hyperthyroidism that generally lasts a few weeks but may persist for months.  
  6. 6. Pituitary gland malfunctions or cancerous Pituitary gland malfunctions or cancerous  growths in the thyroid glandgrowths in the thyroid gland   Although rare, hyperthyroidism can also develop from these causes. 
  7. 7. Types of Types of HypothyroidismHypothyroidism   Stems from an underproduction of  thyroid hormones.  Since your body's energy production requires certain amounts of thyroid hormones, a drop in hormone production leads to lower energy levels. 
  8. 8. Hashimoto's thyroiditisHashimoto's thyroiditis   In this autoimmune disorder, the body attacks thyroid tissue.  The tissue eventually dies and stops producing hormones.

  12. 12. Cancer of the thyroid glandCancer of the thyroid gland   is quite rare and occurs in less than 10% of thyroid nodules.  You might have one or more thyroid nodules for several years before they are determined to be cancerous.  People who have received radiation treatment to the head and neck earlier in life, possibly as a remedy for acne, tend to have a higher­than­ normal propensity for thyroid cancer.
