Hashimoto's Disease
In the United States Hashimoto's disease or Hashimoto's thyroiditis is the number one cause of hypothyroidism. Hashimoto's is largely missed as a diagnosis in today's health care system. Because the basic thyroid testing, or TSH testing, isn't enough to show whether Hashimoto's is present or not, many women go undiagnosed. This article is full of information about Hashimoto's disease and the consequences if it is left untreated.

Hashimoto's Disease or Hashimoto's Thyroiditis is the Number One Cause of Hypothyroidism in the U.S. Today
Hashimoto's disease or Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease. An auto immune disease is where the immune system becomes confused and begins attacking your own body's tissue. When your immune system attacks your thyroid you will see that your thyroid hormone levels will decrease over time. As you lose thyroid tissue, you lose the ability to produce thyroid hormone, which can lead to all the symptoms of low thyroid or hypothyroidism.

While Hashimoto's is more common in women, it can also happen in men. It is also known that today about nine out of ten patients with hypothyroidism suffers from Hashimoto's disease or Hashimoto's thyroiditis, meaning that nine out of ten patients with thyroid problems actually have an autoimmune disease that leads to their thyroid problems.

If this is correct, it means that the majority of people with hypothyroidism are not receiving the treatment that they actually need. While it may be appropriate to give someone with Hashimoto's disease extra thyroid hormones, there is more that needs to be done. Typically, patients with Hashimoto's have their immune system ignored which is the reason that many women never feel right even though their TSH test is coming back within normal ranges, according to their doctor.

There isn't one solution for all Thyroid problems, each case has to be dealt with and treated individually. You must get to the source of your specific problem to help you rid yourself of this devastating disease.
