some characteristics of autoimmune disease combined with hashimoto's thyroiditis
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 8 years ago
Hashimotos thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease, which usually burns out the thyroid and creates a hypothyroid state. Auto antibodies attack the thyroid itself.
Treatment is eventually thyroid replacement therapy.

To approach autoimmune disease in general, medically, requires a diagnosis. To approach it in other ways does not.
An anti-inflammatory, anti-autoimmune diet, for example, will reduce the risks and expression of autoimmune disease. Such a diet can be found in the book EAT TO LIVE by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.
Good Luck

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
