Hashimoto’s disease damages your thyroid function. It is also called chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis or just chronic thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s is the most common cause of hypothyroidism, an underactive thyroid.
The thyroid releases hormones that regulate your metabolism, body temperature, and muscle strength
What is Hypothyroidism?
The thyroid gland is an important endocrine gland that controls the body’s metabolism. It is a small butterfly-shaped gland located in the front of the neck just below the Adam’s apple. The thyroid gland produces the hormones tetraiodothyronine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3).
Together these hormones regulate how your cells use energy. The pathways by which cells use energy is called metabolism. Your body’s general metabolism determines blood pressure, heart rate, and weight.
Hypothyroidism is a condition where your thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone. Low levels of thyroid hormone interfere with the body’s ability to perform normal metabolic functions such as efficient use of energy from food products, regulation of many chemical reactions in the body, and maintenance of healthy cells, bones and muscles, to name a few..
There is no known prevention for hypothyroidism, nor is there a cure. Once you have it, you have it for life

I have hashimoto's.. it's not rare. I've had it over 10 years and take meds daily to help my thyroid function. It's a serious condition because your thyroid control several of your internal organs.. You must keep your thryoid levels regulated so all the organs function propertly. Hashimotos has several symtpoms an I deal with a few of them daily.. Look up the disease online to find out more if you are curious. It has also been linked to too much floride.. and radiation (dental x-rays and such). Keep healthy :)
