What is hyperthyroidism?

Hyperthyroidism, or over activity of the thyroid gland, has a number of possible causes. It may be due to the presence of a growth or tumor or an inflammation of the gland, probably due to viral infection. The most common cause is Graves' disease (85% of cases), an autoimmune disorder related to the production of thyroid antibodies that have a stimulating effect on the gland.

Symptoms of hyperthyroidism are notably:

  • Excessive body heat,
  • Increased cardiovascular activity, with pulse rate that can range from 90 to 160 beats per minute,
  • Hyperactivity, nervousness, hyper excitement, irritability, apprehension, sleeplessness,
  • Difficulty sitting quietly,
  • Unexplained weight loss.

Supplements for hyperthyroidism

Carnitine

Carnitine is manufactured within the body, where it plays an important role in energy metabolism. Carnitine has been shown to inhibit the work of thyroid hormone into the cells. It is therefore interesting to consider when thyroid gland is not working properly.

A six-month study evaluated the use of carnitine in patients suffering from hyperthyroidism. Very positive effects were evidenced for people taking a supplement of 2 to 4g of carnitine per day. Carnitine reduced the symptoms of hyperthyroidism when given as a supplement.

Because carnitine has a low toxicity, the study authors recommend considering carnitine for hyperthyroidism, especially for people with conditions such as liver disease and blood disorders (where they cannot use classic drugs).

Dosage

Carnitine: 2 to 4 g per day
