Hashimoto's thyroiditis, also known as chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis and Hashimoto's disease, is an autoimmune disease in which the thyroid gland is attacked by the body's own immune system [8]. Symptoms of Hashimoto's include fatigue, weight gain, depression, constipation and dry skin [1], although some people may not experience any symptoms at all [2]. It can occur at any age but is most commonly seen in middle-aged women [10]. Treatment typically involves taking synthetic hormones to replace those that are no longer being produced by the damaged thyroid gland. In addition to medication, lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly can help manage symptoms of Hashimoto’s disease [3][4][5][6][7][9].

Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder that affects the thyroid gland. It is caused by antibodies attacking and damaging the cells of the thyroid, leading to inflammation and decreased production of hormones. Symptoms may include fatigue, weight gain, depression, dry skin, constipation, hair loss and a goiter (enlarged thyroid). Treatment typically involves taking synthetic hormones to replace those not produced by the damaged gland.
