English Version

No hay manera de prevenir el hipertiroidismo en el caso de la enfermeda y la mayoría de las otras causas.

Ingerir un exceso de reemplazo de la hormona tiroides también puede dar lugar al hipertiroidismo; cumpla con su plan de tratamiento y realícese análisis de sangre con frecuencia regular. En algunos casos, una ingesta excesiva de yodo, como los suplementos de quelpo, pueden causar hipertiroidismo.
