Chronic Thyroiditis

Chronic Thyroiditis: Everything To Know

About

A condition when your immune system attacks the thyroid gland.

It is seven times more likely to occur in women than men, especially women who have been pregnant.(1)

- Usually treated by a medical professional.
- Requires hormone tests, antibody tests, and other laboratory tests for diagnosis.
- Can happen to both men and women.

Chronic thyroiditis, also is known as Hashimoto’s disease, is an autoimmune disorder. Although the cause is not known, the risk may be high if the family has a history of the disease called Grave's disease, type 1 diabetes, lupus, vitiligo, Addison’s disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. Initially, inflammation of the thyroid causes a leak resulting in excess thyroid hormones (hyperthyroidism). Over time, the inflammation prevents the thyroid from producing enough hormones (hypothyroidism).

Age Affected: between 0-5- rare; above 6- often

Symptoms

- Fatigue and unexplained weight gain.
- Constipation, depression, and feeling sluggish.
- Lower body muscle weakness and thinning hair.
- Irregular periods and problems with fertility.
- Hoarse voice and high cholesterol.

Treatment

Self-care: Your doctor might ask you to eat large soy products or a high fiber diet.

Medications: Your doctor might prescribe you with synthetic hormone medicines to regulate the activity of the organs.
