We’re going to talk about Hashimoto’s disease symptoms in this blog. Hashimoto’s Disease or Hashimoto Thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid gland, which means the immune system makes antibodies against the thyroid gland. This significantly lowers the ability of thyroid gland to produce its hormones, which in clinical terms it is called hypothyroidism. Currently, Hashimoto’s disease is the number one cause of hypothyroidism (low thyroid activity) in the United States. Although this disease mostly affects middle-aged women, it’s common in all ages and both genders.
Here we collected the symptoms of hashimoto’s disease in one poster. Please note that these signs may vary from one person to another. Also if you have one or more of these symptoms, it doesn’t necessary means that you have hashimoto’s disease.
