Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, also know as Hashimoto’s Disease is an auto-immune disease that acts on the thyroid gland. The thyroid inflammation experienced by sufferers eventually destroys the thyroid gland, forcing the patient to spend the remainder of her life taking thyroid replacement hormone for hypothyroidism.
