Manage Hyperthyroidism to Prevent Cardiac Complications

A diagnosis of hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) means having to be “hyper aware” of the potential health complications stemming from this condition.

One other area in particular that is vulnerable to untreated hyperthyroidism is your heart. And the impacts can be felt in many different ways, says Cleveland Clinic endocrinologist Betul Hatipoglu, MD.
