The reaction of the immune system to the thyroid gland can cause a condition referred to as chronic thyroiditis. This often involves a reduced function of the thyroid (hypothyroidism). Another term for this disorder is Hashimoto disease.
At Ageless Wellness Center in Peachtree City GA, we provide effective holistic approaches to treating this Hashimoto thyroiditis. As your Hashimoto disease specialist, we offer hyperthyroid and hypothyroid treatment options to address this condition successfully.
Causes of Hashimoto's Thyroiditis
- The thyroid gland is located in the neck area, slightly above the intersection of the collarbones in the middle. As a common thyroid gland disorder, Hashimoto disease can occur in both young and old. It occurs when the immune system reacts against the thyroid gland. The disease occurs often in middle-aged women. Chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis is a condition involving a dysfunction of the immune system.
- When the immune system attacks the thyroid, inflammation is the result. Sometimes diagnosis is not made in the early stages of the disease when anxiety is the primary symptom. After some time, Hashimoto’s will deplete a person’s energy and cause unexpected weight gain. At this point, individuals start looking for answers. At Ageless Wellness Center, we can provide you with a custom plan tailored to address your specific Hashimoto Thyroiditis condition.
- Often, Hashimoto disease occurs in individuals who have a family history of thyroid disease. The disease progresses gradually and may take months or even years before it is detectable due to lower than normal thyroid hormone levels.
- In rare cases, the disease can be the result of other hormone issues involving the immune system. Regardless, we are your experienced source for Hashimoto disease diagnosis and treatment.
The condition of hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid fails to produce a sufficient number of hormones to fuel the metabolic functions of the body. The most obvious symptoms of this condition are fatigue, mood swings, and unexplained weight gain. At Ageless Wellness Center, we go beyond providing symptom control to address the source of the problem with a customized plan to give you a short and long-term solution for your hypothyroidism condition.
