What is Hashimoto's Thyroiditis?

Hashimoto's Thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks your thyroid gland, interrupting thyroid hormone production. Hashimoto's Thyroiditis is the most common cause of hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid.

Working with an experienced thyroid specialist is vital to correct the thyroid dysfunction and bring back balance to your hormones.
