Did you know that about 90% of hypothyroidism cases happen due to Hashimoto’s?
This is one thing I didn’t know about when I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and went on thyroxine medication in my early 20s.
Hashimoto’s or Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, affects 14 million people in the United States alone, making it the most common thyroid disorder in America.
The American Thyroid Association reports that one in eight women in the United States is impacted by a thyroid disorder at some point during their lifetime.
So a lot of women suffer from hypothyroidism, which in turn may well mean they have Hashimoto’s.
I’ve sent my own Hashimoto’s into remission and I’ve worked with a lot of women looking to balance their thyroid health.
I see this BIG mistake being made over and over again.

Hypothyroidism vs Hashimoto thyroid disease
You might be wondering: what’s the difference between Hashimoto’s disease and hypothyroidism?
Hypothyroidism is when the thyroid is underactive.
This can happen with the disease called Hashimoto’s thyroid disease if it goes on for too long.
In the case of Hashimoto’s, your thyroid antibodies will be raised, meaning that you suffer from inflammation and the gradual destruction of the thyroid gland.
This then results in reduced production of thyroid hormones.
Hypothyroidism means that the thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroid hormones. Hashimoto’s disease is the most common cause of hypothyroidism.
Many doctors will say that high antibodies don’t matter – however, this is NOT true.
