In the usual type of thyrotoxicosis, there is very little plasma TSH left. Measurement of TSI levels to differentiate between thyrotoxicosis. TSI levels are usually increased in cases of thyrotoxicosis but low in cases of thyroid adenoma. Surgical removal of most of the thyroid gland is the most direct treatment for hyperthyroidism. Prior to the operation, the patient is first administered with doses of propylthiouracil, which decreases hormone function, until the patient's metabolic rate returns to normal. Then, large doses of iodides are administered for one to two weeks immediately before the operation, causing the gland to recede in size and its blood supply to diminish. These procedures have decreased the operative mortality to 1 in 1000 operations from 1 in 25 prior to development of modern procedures.
