What is Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis?

Hashi what you say?

This condition is the result of an autoimmune, anti-body mediated thyroid disease process. In simpler terms, it is a process in which your own body destroys your thyroid cells because they are being identified as foreign invaders. Hashimoto’s is the most common cause of Hypothyroidism in the United States. Most individuals affected by Hypothyroidism may have subtle signs and symptoms that worsen over time.

The best way to know for sure if you have either condition is to be evaluated by a highly trained thyroid medical professional.
