About Hashimoto’s disease
Hashiomoto thyroiditis is a commonly overlooked autoimmune disorder. This auto immune disorder is a condition in which the immune system attacks your thyroid. The thyroid gland is a part of your endocrine system, which produces hormones that coordinate many of your body’s functions.
Other autoimmune thyroid disorders include Graves’ disease or (Hyperthyroidism), Hashimoto Thyroiditis, and Hypothyroidism.
Hashimoto’s disease is the most common cause of hypothyroidism and affects primarily middle-aged women. Common symptoms of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis include:
- Chronic Fatigue
- Dry Hair
- Chronic irritability and nervousness
- Early miscarriage
- Brain Fog
We need complete thyroid testing to detect Hashimoto’s disease, this includes a TPO level and five other thyroid hormone levels.
Part of our Life Balance protocol is to optimize hormonal balance, including the thyroid. Our goal is to optimize thyroid function, not just get levels to a normal range. We take your nutritional intake of Selenium, Iodine, Vitamin D, B vitamins into consideration and reduce inflammatory/gut mediated responses including but not limited to a gluten-free diet.
