Understanding Hashimoto's disease

Hashimoto's is one of those autoimmune diseases that is most common in women.  The thyroid is a small, gland in the front of your neck. In people with Hashimoto's disease the immune system makes antibodies that attach the thyroid gland.   Large numbers of white blood cells build up on the thyroid. Once the WBC build up the thyroid can't make enough thyroid hormones. 

This becomes a problem because thyroid hormones control how our bodies use energy, so they affect almost all your organs in your body. 

Once people develop Hashimoto thyroid disease if left untreated it could lead to:

  • high cholesterol
  • heart disease
  • high blood pressure

Symptoms of Hashimoto thyroid disease include

  • fatigue
  • weight gain
  • joint and muscle pain
  • constipation
  • dry skin
  • slowed heart rate

Typical treatment- Thyroid hormone replacement. I highlight the typical because it isn't the only way to treat thyroid disease. We also said it is an auto immune condition in which our own immune system attacks the thyroid gland. 

After thyroid medication has been tried for awhile we also see the benefit of using low dose naltrexone

LDN Capsules

We know this works because most patients need to have their thyroid medications adjusted as the autoimmune part of hashimoto's starts to improve.
