[VIDEO] Is it hypothyroidism or worse – an auto-immune disease?
Share

Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune disorder, characterized by the production of thyroid antibodies by the immune system. This condition may be so mild that it may go unnoticed for many years, but eventually it may destroy so much thyroid tissue that hypothyroidism develops. The diagnosis is made by measuring the blood levels of thyroid hormones T4 and T3, thyroid-stimulating hormone or TSH as well as Thyroid peroxidase antibodies and Thyroglobulin antibodies.
