hidrau,

Hyperthyroidism is commonly treated with radioactive iodine. Hyperthyroidism is when the levels of thyroid hormone are too high, generally increasing the body's metabolism (in mechanical terms, the body is "idling too fast").

Common symptoms and signs of hyperthyroidism
Heart Palpitations
Heat intolerance
Feelings of nervousness
Insomnia
Feelings of breathlessness
Increased bowel movements
Light or absent menstrual periods
Fatigue

Increased heart rate
Trembling hands
Weight loss
Muscle weakness
Warm moist skin
Hair loss

Because hyperthyroidism does not happen overnight, these generally have a slow onset, and often are not noticed in the early stages of the disease. Generally the diagnosis is made by checking blood levels of the thyroid hormones themselves, T4 and T3. Generally it is also a good idea to measure the level of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) - the hormone from the pituitary gland which directs the thyroid to make T3 and T4.

If the cause of the hyperthyroidism is an enlarged or overactive thyroid gland, ablation (destruction) of some of the thyroid can reduce the production of thyroid hormones. This can be accomplished through surgery or through treatment with radioactive iodine. Since the cells of the thyroid gland are the only cells in the body which absorb iodine, the iodine soon concentrates there, and the radioactivity reaches a level where some of the cells are killed, thereby reducing the production of the thyroid hormones.

Cheers,
LHerrou

hidrau,

I am not sure why you gave the accepted answer to an external link. I typed out, largely from my personal knowledge, a complete and easy to understand answer to your question, yet you did not acknowledge that in any way.
