My family and I are uniting to raise money to help Keith Jr with his battle against Hyperthyroidism. Thanks for your willingness to help.

Keith Q. Arnold is suffering from a condition known as hyperthyroidism. The symptoms of hyperthyroidism in men, also known as an overactive thyroid gland, should not ignored or untreated. Hyperthyroidism occurs when a thyroid produces too much of the hormone thyroxine. Basically, it works too hard. There are other factors that can cause this, however, such as Graves’ disease or exposure to radiation. The most common symptoms of hyperthyroidism in men are fatigue, sweating, restlessness, changes in appetite, having trouble concentrating and weight loss. The thyroid itself may also become enlarged, which will cause swelling in the neck and throat area, near the Adam’s apple. Hyperthyroidism
The American Thyroid Association website shows that excessive thyroid hormones result in increased metabolism and possibly unintended weight loss. According to the MedlinePlus website, this can increase the risk of poor muscle growth, edema and slower healing.
