Hashimoto's Disease

Chronic Lymphocytic Thyroiditis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis or Hashimoto's Disease are 3 names given to the very first disease ever to be recognized as an autoimmune. It is a disorder in which your immune system attacks your thyroid gland, often causing hypothyroidism.

Due to its wide range of possible symptoms (weight gain, depression, fatigue, cramps, muscle weakness, dry skin) and no unique characteristics it is often overlooked. This is why it is the number one cause of hypothyroidism in the U.S.

 To diagnose you would have to get your thyroid tested. If you suffer from this disease the usual treatment is thyroid hormone replacement in the form of tablets taken daily. The tablets are effective, but the downside is that they must be taken for a lifetime, a relatively small price to pay. If left untreated, the disorder might even cause heart failure over time, so if you are having any of the common symptoms schedule an appointment with your doctor to get tested.

Words from our in House Expert:

dr.-dave-bordered.jpgDr. Dave States: This particular syndrome is due to the general depletion of the thyroid in general making it run at an abnormal level.  Feeding the thyroid any of the great combinations on our site for supporting the gland over time.  This will normalize the production and output of this essential gland.  Metagenics and Pure Encapsulations both have this glandular support.
