Brief Answer:
Hyperthyroidism is a manageable condition.

Detailed Answer:

Hi and relax, your sister will be fine!

Hyperthyroidism is common in females. It is a condition that can be treated with medicine itself. You need to find out the cause of hyperthyroidism. Most common cause is Graves'disease which is an autoimmune condition. But at times it can be a toxic nodule or merely thyroid infection commonly known as thyroiditis.

So you need to get her radio iodine / Tc99 scan. According to the report you can ask her to see an endocrinologist and she/he will manage accordingly. The life remains absolutely normal, no problem in married life or motherhood.
