HASHIMOTO’S NUTRITIONIST LONDON, MAYFAIR & ONLINE
What is Hashimoto’s?
Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune condition where the immune system attacks the thyroid gland. Hashimoto affects more and more people, mostly middle-aged women, but it can also affect young women, men and even children. Hashimoto’s often develops asymptomatically throughout many years.
What to look for?
Symptoms of Hashimoto’s disease:
- Unexplained weight gain or weight loss
- Fatigue and lethargy
- Frequent colds and infections
- Mood changes
- Memory and concentration problems
- Increased sensitivity to cold, feeling cold even on warm days
- Pale, dry skin
- Swollen face
- Brittle nails
- Hair loss
- Muscle weakness
- Joint pain and stiffness
- Long periods
Hashimoto – laboratory tests
- Anti-TPO antibodies (Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody)
- Anti-TG antibodies (Thyroglobulin Antibody)
Antibody tests can detect Hashimoto very well, often many years before TSH increases.
- Thyroid ultrasound
