Hyperthyroidism results in excessive secretion of thyroid hormones. Here, the thyroid glands become overactive and lead to weight loss as it overproduces metabolic hormones. However, there are ways to control hyperthyroidism such as by restoring the function of the thyroid glands which will no longer produce thyroid hormones excessively. Another method is the Radioactive Iodine treatment. In this method overactive thyroid cells are destroyed slowly. You will subsequently gain weight after the thyroid is destroyed, either by surgery or treatment. After a hyperthyroidism treatment, synthetic hormone therapy is required in order to regulate the metabolism. Finally, consumption of the right calories can also stop excessive weight loss.
