    Depending on the severity, it can be controlled (not cured) through medication. 

    Hyperthyroidism can usually be cured safely and effectively. The appropriate therapy depends on the cause and severity of the disorder. A treatment regimen can include radioactive iodine, anti-thyroid medication or surgery. Beta-blockers are sometimes used to treat the symptoms, although they do not offer a long-term solution. Radioactive iodine is the most common cure for hyperthyroidism in America. Radioiodine is an element taken through the mouth, and it goes on to destroy overactive thyroid cells. The body eventually expels the unused radioiodine on its own. Anti-thyroid medication blocks the thyroid gland from producing new hormones without causing any damage to the endocrine system. If drug-based intervention is unsuccessful, the thyroid gland may be surgically removed. Once the thyroid has been removed, the individual will have to take thyroid hormone replacement pills for the rest of his or her life.

    my g.friend swears by these homepathic and herbal pills she takes for thyroid problems. If you don't want to see a  real doctor, then look in these catalogs and pick one that says it supports thyroid issues. Or, go to a health food store,  or a vitamin shop and find something.

    It can be controlled not cured as Colleen says. I have been on medication for over 25 yrs.

    yes,<!--StartFragment-->hyper hypothyroidism can be cure without surgery.

    Radioactive iodine is the most widely-recommended permanent treatment of hyperthyroidism. This treatment takes advantage of the fact that thyroid cells are the only cells in the body which have the ability to absorb iodine. In fact, thyroid hormones are experts at doing just that.

    For patients with sustained forms of hyperthyroidism, such as Graves' disease or toxic nodular goiter, anti-thyroid medications are often used. The goal with this form of drug therapy is to prevent the thyroid from producing hormones
