Metode Pengobatan Hipertiroid Tanpa Operasi di RS Mandaya Royal Puri, Berhenti Minum Obat Seumur Hidup

Hyperthyroidism is a disease caused by an imbalance of the hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). These hormones play a role in the body’s metabolic processes, but when present in excessive amounts, they can disrupt the metabolic system and trigger hypermetabolism issues. In addition to causing hypermetabolism, an excess of T3 and T4 hormones can also lead to abnormalities in the shape and function of the thyroid gland.

The thyroid gland produces thyroid hormones that ensure the proper functioning of the body’s tissues and organs. Therefore, it’s not surprising that individuals with hyperthyroidism often report several clinical conditions such as rapid heartbeats, insomnia, weight loss, and hand tremors. In women, hyperthyroidism can also affect the menstrual cycle and cause fertility issues.

Symptoms of Hyperthyroidism

Hyperthyroidism is currently categorized as an autoimmune disorder typically characterized by very high thyroid gland activity. Individuals with hyperthyroidism usually experience several symptoms, such as:

  • Tremors
  • Significant weight loss
  • Insomnia
  • Rapid heartbeats
  • Diarrhea
  • Emotional instability

For women:

  • Menstrual cycle disorders
  • Fertility issues



Treatment of Hyperthyroidism

In the medical field, there are many ways to eliminate thyroid nodules and treat thyroid gland disorders, one of which is ablation therapy. Ablation involves using radioactive iodine 131 (RAI) as the treatment medium. The advantage of ablation therapy is a faster recovery time, ranging from 2-4 weeks, and patients will be free from medication dependence.

“Ablation therapy tends to be relatively safer and more comfortable compared to other treatment methods for hyperthyroidism, and it is also relatively affordable. Patients will receive a small dose of radioactive iodine, which will be ingested or applied directly to the thyroid. After recovery, patients will be free from medication dependence,” dr. Eko Purnomo, a nuclear medicine specialist.

In addition to providing a comfortable treatment method, we also offer comfortable treatment rooms to support the patient’s recovery process. Each room is equipped with the latest technology, including a 55-inch Smart TV, coffee and tea maker, microwave, refrigerator, and hotel-quality amenities.
