What causes hyperthyroidism?

The most common cause is Graves’ disease. Another cause is one or more overactive nodules or lumps in the thyroid, a condition known as toxic nodular or multinodulargoiter. Finally, you may temporarily have hyperthyroid symptoms if you have thyroiditis, which causes the gland to leak thyroid hormone, or if you take too much thyroid hormone in tablet form.
