Study group discussion: Hyperthyroidism and decreased appetite

Why in hyperthyroid states there is loss of weight despite increased appetite?

High metabolism?

There is one more reason to it.

Do they have increased bowel movements? Maybe that reduces nutrient absorption?

Hyperthyroid is a protein catabolic state..Hence no matter the external energy provided..The preformed proteins are broken down.

Aah yes!
