Hashimoto’s Disease

Hashimoto, thyroiditis, autoimmune disease, thyroxin, hypothyroidism, gut bacteria, infection

Hashimoto’s, Hashimoto’s Disease or Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is medically defined as an autoimmune disease, where the body turns on itself and slowly destroys the thyroid. When the immune system does this, the thyroid makes less and less thyroxin, a hormone which controls metabolism in the body.  This is called hypothyroidism.
