There are different conditions that may seem similar to each other such as Hashimoto’s Disease and Hypothyroidism. When you say hypothyroidism, this is a problem with your thyroid gland.
This means that the thyroid gland may not be producing as many hormones that are needed to ensure that the rest of the body will be working properly. Hashimoto’s disease, on the other hand, is a type of disease that affects the immune system.
This occurs when the body mistakenly attacks the cells of a certain part of the body because they think that this is a “foreign object’ that should be eradicated from the body.
Hypothyroidism is a disorder where your thyroid is not manufacturing enough of thyroid hormones, which may occur because of the thyroid gland being compromised. Some of the symptoms of hypothyroidism include sudden or rapid weight gain with no discerning shift in food consumption or exercise, being tired all the time, being irritated, and being constipated.
Hashimoto's thyroiditis is a disorder where the immune system attacks the thyroid gland. This may occur without any corresponding symptoms. Hashimoto's patients will not generate the same antibodies, while hypothyroidism does not present the same, and the thyroid antibodies involved are called anti-thyroglobulin.
