Hashimoto's Disease

Common Name(s)

Hashimoto's Disease, Hashimoto thyroiditis, Hashimoto's syndrome

HashimotoÕs syndrome is a form of chronic inflammation of the thyroid gland. The inflammation results in damage to the thyroid gland and reduced thyroid function or Òhypothyroidism,Ó meaning the gland doesnÕt make enough thyroid hormone for the needs of the body. Symptoms of HashimotoÕs syndrome may include goiter, a feeling of fullness in the throat, tiredness, weight gain, cold intolerance, and a slowed heart rate. HashimotoÕs syndrome is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the United States. It is more common in women than in men, and it commonly appears between age 40 and age 60. A person with HashimotoÕs syndrome may not always need treatment. When it is needed, the condition is treated with synthetic thyroid hormone.
