This all is due to their rate of metabolism. Metabolism is controlled by functions of various hormones present in our body.
If these hormones are released in excess or if are released in a small quantity ,both can cause serious illness. One of the hormone is thyroid.
If thyroid hormone is produced in excess then it is called hyperthyroidism which leads to increase in appetite, but the person remains skinny and thin, becomes short tempered and irritating etc.
