The 5 Stages of Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Disease And How They Affect Your Thyroid Health

Hashimoto’s autoimmune disease has stages to it.

Did you know that the majority of thyroid disease cases are autoimmune in nature?

Hashimoto’s thyroiditis as it is known is an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid gland.

It causes your immune system to recognize your thyroid as a foreign invader that needs to be removed and so begins to attack your thyroid.

Eventually, over time this can lead to the destruction of the thyroid gland and you can lose the ability to produce thyroid hormone.

This lack of thyroid hormone is called hypothyroidism and many people then need to go on thyroid medication for life.

What I wanted to cover in my video today are what are called the 5 stages of Hashimoto’s.

These stages as they are called go through how Hashimoto’s autoimmune disease can start and where it can lead if left untreated. (1)

The 1st stage is a genetic predisposition, which simply means that some people are more predisposed to developing the disease than other people due to their genetic makeup. At this stage, Hashimoto’s has not developed as it needs a trigger to start it.

The 2nd stage is when your thyroid gland has too many white blood cells in it.

Normally there will be a certain amount needed by the body to clean up old and damaged cells, but when there are too many white blood cells present then this can begin the autoimmune attack on the thyroid.

Make sure to watch my video in full to discover all 5 of the stages for Hashimoto’s and how to deal with this serious autoimmune condition.
