Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland overproduces the thyroxine hormone. Increased production of thyroxine increases the body's metabolism. With advances in medical science, there are several types of hyperthyroid treatments available in the market. But over all other available forms treatment for hyperthyroidism, antithyroid medications and radioactive iodine are the two most common treatments practised by endocrinologists these days. Radioactive iodine is also a form of oral medication that kills the hormone producing cells. In many rare cases, doctors may also turn to the surgical form of treatment in which a portion or the entire thyroid gland is removed from the body. Post-surgery, patients are prescribed hormone supplements to prevent them from hypothyroidism. Apart from these traditional form of hyperthyroid treatment, beta-blockers such as propranolol works wonders to help arrest the common hyperthyroidism symptoms. Typical cost of treating hyperthyroid using antithyroid medications is $10-$150 per month or $120-$1,800 a year. Again, while the radioactive form of treatment may cost around $4,000 or more, the surgical form of treatment will cost you around $25,000. In case of antithyroid medication treatment, drug dose should be taken on a regular basis until the gland starts functioning normally. Radioactive iodine therapy is generally a single dose medication given in the form of capsule or liquid, a second dose of which may be taken after 6 months if hyperthyroidism symptoms persist. The surgical treatment that takes 3 – 4 hours to be completed works as an immediate cure of hyperthyroidism.
