The Most Common Signs Of Hypothyroidism

The Most Common Signs Of Hypothyroidism

Do you find yourself having less energy than normal?

Maybe you’ve been putting on some extra weight recently without any explanation as to why… These are common symptoms of an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks thyroid cells and causes inflammation and destroys the thyroid tissue. This type of autoimmune disease affects approximately 15% of the world’s population and tends to run in families. 

What is it?

A more common term for this particular autoimmune thyroid disease is Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis or HT. The term “Hashimoto’s” comes from the doctor it was named after, Dr. Hakaru Hashimoto, who was a Japanese doctor and medical scientist during the early 1900’s known for publishing the first description of the disease. 

It was only after English and American researchers evaluated his published paper that the disease Dr. Hashimoto described was recognized as an independent illness, thus being named Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.

As the disease progresses, some may experience some of the more advanced symptoms like:

The good news is there are certain diets that can help lower thyroid antibodies. In fact, a recent study was conducted on a group of 34 women with autoimmune thyroiditis to further understand the effects that a gluten-free diet has on thyroid antibodies, which revealed that the gluten-free diet may bring clinical benefits to women with autoimmune thyroid disease. 

Also, there have been studies demonstrating that the combination of the trace mineral selenium (selenomethionine (83 mcg) + nutrient myo-inositol (600 mg) has been shown to reduce thyroid autoantibodies (thyroid peroxidase and thyroglobulin) and improve thyroid hormone levels for patients with HT.
