I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease in my sophomore year of high school. It’s an autoimmune disorder in which antibodies attack the thyroid gland. I’ve been doing annual blood work and sonograms to monitor my nodules for the past 10 years… to this point, my thyroid has not gone hypo- or hyper- so I’m not prescribed a synthetic hormone. I’m glad to not be taking the medication but I’m wondering if some of the other health issues I’ve been experiencing over the past 10 years aren’t associated with this diagnosis. I feel like my current treatment plan doesn’t help me manage the day-to-day symptoms associated with this disorder.
