Cardiovascular manifestations of hyperthyroidism include increased heart rate, stroke volume, and cardiac output. Peripheral vascular resistance is decreased, and thus pulse pressure is widened. As a result, myocardial oxygen consumption increases, which may precipitate angina. Other symptoms include palpitations, presyncope or syncope, and exertional dyspnea. Arrhythmias may occur. Common symptoms include weight loss, weakness (especially in the elderly), and tachycardia or palpitations.
